Rutherford Weekend: 5 Happenings This Weekend


Looking for something to do this weekend? Here are 5 events in and near Rutherford Weekend.

It’s a Scavenger Hunt – Murfreesboro

Saturday, July 2, 10:00am-4:00pm

If you have friends and family in town for the Fourth, this is a great way to get out and explore and do something fun together.

It’s a Scavenger Hunt!™ is a traditional scavenger hunt with a modern twist!

All you need is your own mobile device and a data connection. Young and old, individuals, families or friends can all participate in a group, as a couple, or individually.

This all-age activity is a smartphone-guided event where you play alone with your group in your own neighborhood on your own schedule by following instructions provided by the in-game host.

Fill your virtual scavenger sack with the items you help choose through riddle-like clues!

Explore your surroundings, attempting to quickly locate a variety of items as they are revealed one at a time by your game master.

Get outdoors, get creative and try to get a top spot in the It’s a Scavenger Hunt!™ Hall of Fame.

Teams are timed and each item found will be appraised and a combination of these two factors will be used to rank you against other teams.
