Happy Birthday Alabama! It’s time to break out the thinking caps and magnifying glasses for the third and final year of the Alabama Bicentennial Celebration. Alabama is turning 200 this year, and we are bringing back Itty Bitty Auburn to celebrate. Beginning Thursday, August 1, participants can pick up a worksheet for the scavenger hunt at any Parks and Recreation facility or find it on the City of Auburn website, auburnalabama.org/itty-bitty, printed in select newspapers and on Facebook.

The worksheet features 25 itty-bitty sites in various historic locations around Auburn, along with four (4) bonus sites. The 4 bonus sites will be posted in the Facebook event page (2019 Itty Bitty Auburn Scavenger Hunt) on August 2nd,9th,16th and 23rd. Participants will find these sites and write the location on the worksheets. Completed worksheets must be turned in to the Harris Center by Friday, August 30 at 5 p.m. To be eligible for prizes, the worksheet must have correct answers for ALL itty bitty sites. Those who complete all 25 sites correctly and answer the four bonus questions correctly on the worksheet will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing. Winners will be announced and contacted on Thursday, September 5.

As part of the Alabama Bicentennial celebration, 2019 has been designated as the year of “Telling our Stories.” We are celebrating our game-changers, history-makers, boundary-breakers, and the storytellers who enrapture generations. The Itty Bitty Auburn scavenger hunt is a designated Alabama Bicentennial event, honoring the people who make up the richly woven history of the Loveliest Village on the Plains. For more information about the Alabama Bicentennial celebration, visit alabama200.com. To stay up-to-date on the Itty Bitty Auburn scavenger hunt, join the Facebook event group at facebook.com/CityofAuburnAL. Hints regarding each of the sites will be published to the City’s Facebook event group, City of Auburn Website (auburnalabama.org/itty-bitty) and on the City of Auburn’s Instagram page (@cityofauburnal).
