Search for the Frosty Bucket

A holiday twist on the traditional Golden Bucket search

Summary

The City of Nanaimo, Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture is inviting adventurous residents to "Search for the Frosty Bucket" stickers this holiday season for a chance to win some great prizes.

This version of the usual bucket search is a little different this time with participants finding 12 words, unscrambing those words and then creating a phrase.

Here is how to play:

  • Use the daily clue from Facebook, Instagram (@nanaimoparksandrec) or on the website to discover a local street name. (HINT: pay close attention to the bolded words).

  • Find a park or trail linked to this neighbourhood.

  • Use a QR Reader App to pull up a hidden word.

  • Find all 12 locations and all 12 words and then unscramble the words to come up with a special phrase.

  • Email this phrase to parksandrecreation@nanaimo.ca for a chance to win a Parks, Recreation and Culture Gift Pack!

Clues will be posted each morning starting December 13 until December 24. The contest closes on Monday, January 4 at 4:30 pm.

Link to Strategic Plan: Search for the Frosty Bucket Contest supports creating a livable community as identified in the City of Nanaimo's Strategic Plan.

Key Points

  • Clues will be posted daily through Facebook, Instagram (@nanaimoparksandrec) and on the City of Nanaimo website from December 13 until December 24.
