Legend of the Pickle Holiday Scavenger Hunt
Sunday November 14, 2021 through Sunday December 12, 2021
We are excited to partner with the Claussen Pickle team from Kraft Heinz again to bring this unique holiday tradition to Woodstock. The Legend of the Pickle is a tradition of unknown origins (there are many stories as to where it originated). An ornamental pickle is placed on an inside branch of a Christmas tree as one of the decorations. On Christmas morning, the first person to find the pickle on the tree would receive an extra present from Santa or would be said to have a year of good fortune. Since we could all use some good fortune, we are bringing this tradition to Woodstock with a slightly new twist.
Participating Woodstock businesses have an ornamental pickle hidden on a tree in their business. Scavenger hunters can unscramble the clues to identify the participating businesses and locate the pickles hidden throughout Woodstock. Participants will have to find 20 pickles to complete the scavenger hunt and turn in their game card to receive a Legend of the Christmas Pickle Craft ornament for their own tree. They also earn a chance to win an I-pad or other great prizes! There is no fee to participate in the Scavenger Hunt. Please just pick up a card from a participating business or download a game card here and get started! Complete the form and return it to the Chamber or one of the other participating drop off locations listed on the poster. The fun kicks off on National Pickle Day, Sunday November 14, 2021.
