The O-Mazing Race: New Orleans Ultimate Scavenger Hunt
Sunday April 1 (02:00 PM - 06:00 PM)
Spend an unforgettable afternoon in the French Quarter, where teams of 4 to 6 people will pursue clues, testing their knowledge of all things Southern culture – music, art, literature and fashion – in this exhilarating, interactive scavenger hunt adventure. Then, in true New Orleans style, the afternoon rolls into an after-party while scores are tallied and prizes awarded, including one for best costumes!
In the past, from the starting gun’s craze to the Quarter’s beignets, contestants found secret gardens and galleries, touched ghosts and tarots, got carts and body art, and serenaded our city while sipping its finest concoctions. They sang karaoke, learned Russian history, and found the Saints. Nude girls! Recording studios! Movie stars! Anything can and will happen this year!
You don’t want to miss this chance to test your knowledge in all things New Orleans – and win prizes!
Warning: Tequila Chickens, Samurai Swords, Ferraris, Mullets, and Shotgun Weddings … this ain’t your daddy’s scavenger hunt!
