Fun Fun Fun Fest Announces Scavenger Hunt Across Texas


Fun Fun Fun Fest announced the details of their 2012 Scavenger Hunt today and this year the contest will span across four Texas cities. Set for September 22nd across Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio the contest sends contestants to various locations across their respective hometowns to mark intriguing and sometime questionable tasks off their lists in order to win tickets and other prizes from Fun Fun Fun Fest.

In past years, fans have gone as far as placing a bartender’s toe in their mouths to getting FFF tattoos on their necks during the course of this fascinating event. All in the name of the festival that unerringly delivers the best in independent rock, electro, hip-hop, metal, punk, and comedy each year. Other items on past lists have included pictures of team members moshing inside a dumpster, petting a fake duck, dousing their faces in queso, and riding a pedicab nude.

This year’s list will be provided at check-in at each city, and the finish line will be revealed on the list. Fans can register for each city’s Scavenger Hunt at http://funfunfunfest.com/scavenger-hunt.

Advance online registration is highly recommended to get your team bonus points. The hunt lasts between 3-4 hours. As always, there will also be several clues on each list that will benefit a variety of local food banks and homeless outreach organizations. In Austin, the beneficiary will once again be CARITAS of Austin.
