Scavenger Hunt Marks Start of Tower’s Kid’Cation Activities
Prizes and reduced admission for participants
(Hartford, Ill – July 30, 2015) – How many communities can be seen from the Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower’s highest viewing platform? Which two rivers form a confluence near the Tower? Children answering those questions and more can earn a prize during the Tower’s 10 day Kid’Cation Scavenger Hunt beginning Friday, July 31.
The Tower, located at 435 Confluence Tower Dr., Hartford, IL, will offer the Scavenger Hunt as part of the regional Kid’Cation activities which kick off July 31 and run through Sunday, Aug. 9 throughout the Meeting of the Great Rivers region. Those participating in the scavenger hunt will receive an official Scavenger Hunt form with their half price admission of $1 for children and $2 for adults. All adults must be accompanied by a child to receive the reduced admission rates.
“Scavenger hunts are really so much fun for everyone,” Deanna Barnes, Hartford Project Manager said. “This gives children and parents the opportunity to learn more about the Tower, the history of the area and just plain fun facts. We are really looking forward to giving families a reason to enjoy our area with Kid’Cation.”
Kid’Cation was developed by the Alton Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau as a way to provide affordable, family-oriented vacation opportunities for families.
Guided daily tours are available throughout the day at the Tower. Regular admission to the Tower is $4 for adults, $3 for adults 62 and over, active military and veterans, $2 for children 12 and under and children two and under are free.
