Join us on a trail through Downtown Van shop windows to find the tiny skeleton fairies this October…

In the run-up to Hallowe’en, tiny skeleton fairies (‘scaries’) will be featured in the windows of 10 participating business members in our business improvement area.

Keep an eye on this webpage; location clues will be announced on FRIDAY 13 OCTOBER. Spooky…

  2. ? Snap & post an Instagram photo of the ‘scarie’
  3. ? Tag & follow @vancouvermysteries, the business, and @downtownvan on Instagram
  4. ➕ Add hashtag #downtownskeletonhunt
  5. ☝  Only one entry accepted per ‘scarie’ photo
  6. ?  Find 5+ and be entered into the $500+ GRAND PRIZE

For each entry, you’ll be entered into a prize draw for a $100 or $50 gift card to that business.

Can you catch them all? Find at least 5 ‘scaries’ to be in with the chance of winning the Grand Prize! The Grand Prize is valued at $500+ and includes a gift certificate from Vancouver Mysteries.
