Waite Park's annual Family Fun Fest is currently underway, with many events planned throughout the week. Today's events comprise of a variety of outdoor activities including a disc golf tournament this evening. Check out today's full schedule and stop back tomorrow for more!
The geocaching contest continues today through Friday throughout the City of Waite Park. If you've never tried geocaching before, it's essentially a GPS game of hide and seek! Participants will use their GPS to locate containers called "geocaches". Once you locate the "geocache" you'll open it and record the code located inside. The code will correspond with a square on your game card, which you can pick up at City Hall. The goal is to find as many as you can before Friday at 5 p.m. You're asked to bring your completed cards to Waite Park Community Park on Friday between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to claim your prize. You'll also be entered into a drawing to win a large prize on Saturday, June 10.
Participants will be searching for a medallion from now until it's found. Clues are posted everyday on the city's website, at city hall and on the Waite Park TV channel 181. The winner will receive their prize on Saturday, June 10 in Waite Park Community Park. Today's clue is;
