Santa and his elves were busy at the North Pole preparing for Christmas Eve when the reindeer decided to practice their route for the big night. While flying over Charleston, Rudolph suggested that they make a stop to pick up a special gift for Mrs. Claus. As they approached downtown, the reindeer dropped their magical bells in Hampton Park. Santa's reindeer need your help to find their bells before Christmas Eve!

Follow the map around Hampton Park to find all nine magical balls. Unscramble the word on each bell to reveal a special gift the reindeer picked up in Charleston. 

Families are invited to participate at their convenience in this self-led activity.

Post pictures of your family participating in Hampton Park in our event and use hashtag #HolidayHuntInHampton to receive a prize at the end! Make sure you don't post pictures of the answers - we want everyone to enjoy the fun!


Happy Hunting! #HolidayHuntInHampton
