  • Oh no! Santa's elves are playing a prank on the big guy. They have taken some toys and are hiding with them in Hamilton. Santa needs your help in finding them. Can you help Santa solve the riddles the elves have left behind and find all 8 of them in time to save Christmas? The elves were last seen near the Alexander Hamilton sculpture on High Street. That would be a great place to park near and start your search!

    Follow the clues to find the elves at the different locations and scan the QR code with the picture. At the end of the video message from Santa there will be a different secret letter hidden within the names of the toys that spell out a magic code word. Find all 8 elves and collect 8 letters of the code word. Put all the letters together and email the magic code word to explorehamiltonoh@gmail.com. Please include the magic word, your name, and where you’re from and you'll be entered into a drawing for Holly Jolly Hamilton prizes! You can get a second bonus magic word for another entry to win prizes by finding Santa's secret elf hidden in another location given by Santa once you have completed finding all 8 elves. Hamilton's Reindeer Game runs through January 1, 2023.  Happy searching!
