St. Johns Boo-sters Halloween Events

Scavenger Hunt

Some of you may remember our Halloween Scavenger Hunt that we introduced in 2020, and we’re bringing it back this year!

St. Johns Boo-sters Halloween Scavenger Hunt, October 29 - 31st

The scavenger hunt begins at the start of business on Thursday 10/29 and goes through 10/31, or until we run out of candy!

  1. Pick up a scavenger hunt sheet at one of the participating businesses.
  2. Look for decorations/clues in the business’s windows.  They will be designated with a Boosters logo so you will know it is an official clue!  (Note: since the clues will be in store windows, you can go anytime, not just during store hours!)
  3. Answer the questions on the scavenger hunt sheet.  Don’t forget to check the back for a fun puzzle!
  4. Once you have completed the entire sheet, you can turn in your sheet to one of the businesses and receive a pre-packaged bag of candy.
Clue list for Scavenger Hunt. Look in store windows.
