A scavenger hunt around the Rockaway peninsula to kick off beach season

Details Date: May 19, 2018 iCal
Start: 9:00 AM
End: 4:00 PM

The Rockaway Business Alliance hosts its second annual #EatShopSurfRock event, a scavenger hunt intended to engage participants with our new technology project Rockaway ConneX, and unveil the hidden treasures of the Rockaway business community. Participants will visit RBA member businesses, using their phones to engage with beacon and QR code technology to collect clues and treasure.

Starting points for the scavenger hunt:

NYC Ferry Landing (Beach Channel Drive and B108)

Edgmere Farm, Cowboy Breakfast (only until 11am): 385 Beach 45th St, Far Rockaway, NY 11691

Cuisine by Claudette: 143 Beach 116th St, Far Rockaway, NY 11694

Participants will connect with a beacon and/ or QR code at the starting location, which will link to a map of all participating locations. From there, they can “choose their own adventure,” traveling around the peninsula by foot, bike, car or public transportation and engaging with Rockaway ConneX to receive hidden clues and special discounts at local businesses.

The first clue will be available starting at 9am on Saturday May 19th, but participants can join anytime between 9am and 3pm.
