Eye spy cultural scavenger hunt is on

By Lindsay Advocate

With the changing colours and cooler temperatures, now is the perfect time for a drive and for a game of Eye Spy, according to a media release from the City of Kawartha Lakes. From Sept. 4 to Oct. 31, spot the icon posted at one of 19 cultural locations across Kawartha Lakes and learn new details about some of the city’s oldest artefacts.   

The Arts & Heritage Trail is hosting a cultural scavenger hunt designed to allow safe tourism throughout Kawartha Lakes. The self-guided trail, developed in 2017, has over 50 locations. It features a number of attractions that share the culture and heritage of the region. 

How to play:

  1. Visit kawarthalakes.ca/culturalscavengerhunt and check out the available cultural locations;
  2. Plan your trip and look for each of the signature icons at their respective site;
  3. Take a photo with the icon and then post it to social media tagging @explorekawarthalakes and hashtag #EyeSpyKL.

Participating in the scavenger hunt is a fun and COVID-19 safe way to get out and tour Kawartha Lakes, and participants may even win prizes.

The scavenger hunt explores the engineering marvels of the Trent-Severn Waterway, the heritage villages, historic structures and even a new performance space for live theatre and cozy storytelling. Not far from each Scavenger Hunt location are interesting artisans and craft cuisine nestled in villages with magnificent countryside vistas.
