The free, family-friendly event is being sponsored by the city of Annapolis Historic Preservation Commission and the MainStreets Annapolis Partnership, in conjunction with the upcoming Maryland Day.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at City Hall and the scavenger hunt starts at 10 a.m. It is open to all ages, with prize categories for children 12 and younger and adults. All children (12 and younger) who participate will receive a small prize.
All participants are required to return their completed entries by 2 p.m. and the prize drawing will be held at 2:30 p.m. Competitors do not have to be present to win.
The scavenger hunt is in cooperation with Four Rivers: The Heritage Area of Annapolis, London Town and South County to commemorate the founding of Maryland in 1634.
