Lithgow City Council, with support from Harvey Norman Lithgow, has launched a Scavenger Hunt that will run throughout the month of October with the aim of encouraging people to shop locally.

“The Scavenger Hunt is a fun activity for families to do together, and we hope this contributes to the excitement in the lead up to Lithgow Halloween,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Cr Stephen Lesslie.  “Supporting local businesses is a key objective of the Lithgow Halloween event, and the Scavenger Hunt aims to benefit as many retail areas as possible.”

People will be drawn into local shops and cafes in search of thirteen Halloween characters that have been hidden in businesses across the region. In order to go into the draw for exciting prizes, including an iPad Pro, Laptop or $200 voucher for Harvey Norman, participants need to correctly answer the location and character for a minimum of eight clues. If all thirteen characters are found, participants are immediately entered into the draw three times. The characters are displayed on larger Halloween posters hidden inside stores.

For clues and an entry form, pick up the Scavenger Hunt form from businesses, the Visitor Information Centre, or download from the Lithgow Halloween website.

Entries close Monday 23rd October 2017. Completed forms can be sent to:

Lithgow Halloween Scavenger Hunt, PO Box 19, Lithgow NSW 2790, or scanned and emailed to
