The City of San Marcos is kicking off a #DiscoverSanMarcos photo scavenger hunt


The City of San Marcos is kicking off a #DiscoverSanMarcos photo scavenger hunt Monday, Aug. 29 through Sunday, Oct. 30. Visit local parks, trails, facilities, activities and events to receive participation souvenirs and a chance to win gift cards and a WinCo shopping spree valued up to $500.

“With thousands of programs and healthy activities offered each year, this scavenger hunt is a fun way to help residents discover all that San Marcos has to offer,” said Community Services Director Buck Martin. “From hiking to concerts to swimming, athletics, arts and dance classes, San Marcos has something for everyone.”

Designed to encourage residents to discover the variety of recreation places and programs that the City has to offer, the #DiscoverSanMarcos scavenger hunt asks participants to take photos at a variety of pre-determined locations.

“Social media is a great way for the community to engage with their government and learn about city services, issues, news and event,” said Communications Officer Sarah Macdonald.

Participants are encouraged to post the photos to social media and tag images with the hashtag #DiscoverSanMarcos along with a location-specific tag listed on the scavenger hunt photo log.

“By using the #DiscoverSanMarcos tag during the scavenger hunt, residents can help others discover San Marcos and all the things that make this community a vibrant place to live, work and play,” said Macdonald.

Here’s how it works:

  • Like and Follow @sanmarcoscity on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
  • Visit www.san-marcos.net/DiscoverSanMarcos for a complete listing of destinations and a photo log to track scavenger hunt discoveries.
  • Snap photos at each location, post it to social media and tag your photo with the hashtag #DiscoverSanMarcos along with the location-specific tag indicated on the photo log.
  • For the last stop, visit the San Marcos Community Center at 3 Civic Center Drive to complete a registration form and show city staff your log and scavenger hunt photos.

Participants will receive a program souvenir and earn one raffle ticket for each photo stop completed for the chance to win prizes donated by local businesses. Prize drawings will be conducted in early November.

For more information, visit www.san-marcos.net/DiscoverSanMarcos or contact San Marcos Community Services at (760) 744-9000.
