PITTSBORO — Circle City Merchants, a Pittsboro-based group of business owners, entrepreneurs, food producers and restaurants, is hosting its first “Treasure Quest,” a scavenger hunt for the Pittsboro area, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 23.

Teams of up to six people are welcome to register for this event through the website Eventbrite under “Pittsboro Treasure Quest.”

Registration is $25 and due by Friday, and there will be prizes for best team name, most enthusiastic team/team spirit, and team costumes. This event is not time-based; rather, prizes of $500 for 1st place, $300 for 2nd place, and $200 for 3rd place will be awarded based on total points accumulated from the challenges.

Sign-in starts at 10:30 a.m. at the SOCO parking lot downtown and participants will receive a packet of clues leading to local businesses, landmarks, and special guest locations. At each location, teams will complete a challenge before heading to their next stop. The Circle City Merchants team will be monitoring these challenges through social media and tabulating points for each team.
