Parks & Rec Candy Cane Hunt returns for the holidays

Juneau, Alaska (KINY) – Explore Juneau, support local businesses, and win prizes this holiday season in CBJ Parks & Recreation’s Candy Cane Hunt.

Print or download a Candy Cane Tracker from the Parks & Rec website, then head out and around town Dec. 1 – 17 to find the printed candy cane numbers in the store windows.

The more candy canes you find, the more chances you’ll earn to win prizes.

This activity is open to both kids and adults. To enter the prize drawing, submit your Candy Cane Tracker by noon on Dec. 18. 20 candy cane numbers earn one ticket in the drawing, 35 numbers earn two tickets, and finding every single number earns five tickets.

Some businesses are offering specials for Candy Cane Hunt participants, like a discount or a free item with a purchase. Look for a list of the specials on the back of the tracker and show your tracker at the business to get the incentive.

Parks & Recreation will hold the prize drawing on Tuesday, Dec. 19, and winners will be notified by phone/email and announced on Juneau Parks & Recreation’s Facebook page.

If you don’t have access to a printer, email parks.rec@juneau.gov with your mailing address and how many trackers you need. Trackers are also available at the entrance of City Hall, Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

For more information, call Parks & Recreation at (907) 586-5226, or visit the Candy Cane Hunt website or the Facebook event.
