Historic Downtown HartvilleHistoric Downtown Hartville is located at the intersection of E. Maple St. and S. Prospect Ave (State Routes 619 & 43) on the east side of town.

Teams will be given a game packet with everything you need at check-in. Your goal is to answer a mystery question about Historic Downtown Hartville. BUT, three words are missing from your question. To find them your team will solve three puzzles (think code breaking, “Clue” questions, and pop culture). Eggs will be hidden all over downtown to help you along the way. Find them for puzzle clues, to enter to win prizes, and score a sweet treat for your team.
