The Beacon Hill Merchants Association presents a special treat for this coming Saturday, July 20th: A “Walk About” and Scavenger Hunt at Beacon Hill Station and Stevens Place Park (the park commonly known as “Triangle Park” at Beacon Avenue South and South Stevens Street).
The Stevens Place Park info booth for the event will sell four different “Walk About” collectible buttons featuring local artists. The buttons are also good for that-day-only bargains at local shops.
A “Taste Of Beacon,” starting at 4:30 p.m. at the park, features a piñata at 5:30, plus samples of food and drink from the following Beacon Hill restaurants: Traveler’s Thali House, Baja Bistro, Inay’s, La Cabaña, El Sabroso, Beacon Avenue Sandwiches, Victrola Espresso, Despi Delite Bakery, and Golden Daisy.
Free entertainment on your way all along Beacon Avenue starts at 4 p.m. and includes: The Adam Hicks Trio at the Station; DJ WD4D, DJ Shorthand, Culture Shakti, and Naira Kai at Hanford Mural Stage; a community art project at 15th and Beacon; DJ Joel Mercado, Gosona, and Dansing Lolos at the El Quetzal/Victrola stage; and an ongoing letterpress printing demonstration at Day Moon Press.
The Scavenger Hunt can be played one of two ways. Register at Stevens Place Park or at Beacon Hill Station starting at 4 p.m. The smartphone version uses the Munzee app to play. The competition runs between 4 and 8:45 pm. The top three hunters of Munzee sites will receive trophies.
Those desiring an old-fashioned scavenger hunt may register, then follow a map and clues, to pick up twenty items at participating “Walk About” businesses. The fastest person to collect all twenty wins a trophy.
