Find the Golden Bucket Contest is back

Summary

The City of Nanaimo Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture is inviting adventurous residents to "Search for the Golden Bucket" again this year. Players will search for a Golden Bucket sticker with a QR code on it based on a weekly clue. Once scanned, the QR code will take participants to a web page where a question on that park will be posted, as well as some REIMAGINE Nanaimo information to keep residents apprised of Phase 2 of the process.

Once the question has been answered, it can be submitted for a chance to win weekly prizes and also the chance to win the grand prize of a kayak tour for up to 5 people courtesy of Coastal Expression Adventure Centre that is valued at $300!

Clues will be posted each Wednesday from May 5 until July 28 on the City's Facebook page and Twitter feed (@cityofnanaimo) and Nanaimo Parks and Recreation Instagram (@nanaimoparksandrec) and on the website.

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