There’s plenty of food, live music, and fun events at next weekend’s Tampa Riverfest 2018 on May 4-5 at  Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park and all along the Tampa Riverwalk. To add to the fun, Downtown Crawlers has set up a scavenger hunt on Saturday, May 5! The Scavenger Hunt at Tampa Riverfest 2018 - Cinco de Mayo is open to adults as well as families, and you can win exciting prizes like tickets to Adventure Island and a staycation stay at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina!

There are two different versions of the scavenger hunt:

Adult Tampa Riverfest 2018 Scavenger Hunt

The adult scavenger hunt runs from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on May 5. It begins at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, then continues along the entire Riverwalk with stops at participating bars and venues. The hunt will take between 2-3 hours and includes between 1-4 miles of walking or cycling. It can be completed by teams of between two and five people. The entry fee is $20 per person, with proceeds benefitting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tampa Bay.

Included in your entry fee is a free welcome donut from Little Donut House, a goodie bag sponsored by Old St. Petersburg Whiskey (limited to the first 100 teams to register), and an hour of free bicycle rental from Coast Bike Share to help you finish the search. Everyone is entered into the raffles for Adventure Island tickets, the Tampa Marriott Waterside staycation, and lots of other terrific prizes. Plus, any team who completes at least 10 tasks on the scavenger hunt gets coupons for two free tacos from TacoFest at Tampa Riverfest 2018!

Family Tampa Riverfest 2018 Scavenger Hunt

The family version of the scavenger hunt takes place entirely within Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. It runs from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and the stroller-friendly search will take about an hour to complete. The entry fee for this hunt is $10 for a group of up to six people, making it some very affordable family fun! Everyone gets a free welcome donut from Little Donut Shop, and each group is entered into a raffle for Adventure Island tickets and other exciting prizes. Proceeds also benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tampa Bay.

There’s plenty of fun at Tampa Riverfest 2018, and the Scavenger Hunt at Tampa Riverfest 2018 - Cinco de Mayo is just another way for everyone to enjoy the beautiful Tampa Riverwalk. To learn more about the scavenger hunt, go to Get your team together, then get ready, get set, get searching!
