2021 Candy Cane Hunt

Join the Candy Cane Hunt this holiday season from December 1 through 19 in downtown Juneau. You won’t be hunting for real candy canes in this DIY activity, but a few treats and great prizes are a certain possibility. Search for the unique candy cane number in the shop windows of participating businesses and match it to the business name using your Candy Cane Tracker. Five bonus candy canes are also hidden in CBJ office windows; find out what to look for and how to earn the bonus tickets here. Trackers and any bonus selfies must be submitted by noon on Monday, December 20 to be eligible for great prizes donated by the participating businesses.

I Spy – Park, Town, and Trail

Take the young ones on an I Spy adventure and see what they can find in their favorite park, on a trail, or around town. Print out the activity sheet or download it to your phone to get started. The device-friendly version works best using the Adobe Acrobat Reader app.

The activity can be done at any time, however, the prize box is no longer available.

Juneau Voices Matching Game

Go on an ‘audio walk’ and hear stories about life in Juneau by scanning the QR codes found on each of the 11 new signs around downtown. Match the storyteller to the their topic to complete this DIY activity. Then, while supplies last, get a limited edition Juneau Voices bookmark by presenting your completed game sheet at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum or the Downtown Public Library.
