“There’s no place like downtown.” 

If you’re looking to indulge in a unique fall activity, you can take part in a Wizard of Oz-themed scavenger hunt this weekend in Burlington.

The Burlington Downtown Business Association recently took to social media to announce its “Oz-some” scavenger hunt. On Saturday, Oct. 14, residents are invited to use their “heart, brain and courage” to find 10 Oz characters and icons that will be hiding in various downtown business windows. 

Anyone who uncovers all 10 finds will have a chance to win one of three $50 Burlington Downtown gift cards. 

The event is part of the association’s Falling for Burlington Downtown annual autumn showcase, a yearly event that features free activities that allow residents to explore the city’s downtown core. 

“Take in delicious pizza, nibbles and crafts along the Promenade walkway. Play games and snap some Instagram worthy pics in Civic Square! Enjoy seasonal treats and sweets along Brant Street & in Village Square, though you should take extra care in those parts as we’ve heard there’s a wicked witch that lives in that neck of the woods!” the association says on its website. 

According to the website, participants who follow the yellow brick road can expect treats, sweets, drinks and more.

The event will kick off at 12 p.m. and run until 4 p.m.
