2013 JINGLE BELL ROCK

 

This 2013 holiday scavenger hunt will lead you to various spots in Springville on your quest to find the Jingle Bell Rock. The first person or group to find all the locations and the rock will receive a Santa Sampler package.

Each day at 9 am from December 9th through December 16th a single clue is revealed. Clue #1 will lead to a spot, then clue #2 will describe another location, and so on. MOST locations are visible from the previous location. The final clue will lead to the Jingle Bell Rock hidden somewhere in the community. Clues are given once per day and will remain posted on this webpage throughout the contest. Keep track of each location from every day in order to claim the prize. No additional hints will be given. There will be a message hidden with the Jingle Bell Rock giving specific instructions to the person or group that finds it, which could result in winning the Santa Sampler prize package. HAVE FUN!
