Can I participate with a group?

Do I have to be 21 years old?

  •  Most of our hunts are open to anyone!  We do usually start and end at a bar but the bar serves food so people under 21 are allowed inside.  The only time this does not apply is if we are doing a bar crawl type of event like our St. Patty’s Day Hunt and Mardi Gras hunt.

How long is the hunt?
