City of Nanaimo challenges families to get out and find the ‘golden bucket’

Search for golden bucket stickers aimed at encouraging residents to explore parks and trails

The City of Nanaimo’s parks and rec department is organizing a ‘golden bucket’ search to help keep citizens on the move.

The city’s Search for the Golden Bucket contest is underway, with the hopes that it will help motivate residents to explore parks and trails. People can follow the city’s social media channels to find clues leading them to a sticker with further contest instructions. There are weekly prizes and a family kayak tour grand prize courtesy Coastal Expression Adventure Centre.

Weekly clues will be posted on Wednesdays until July 29. For more information, search for the City of Nanaimo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Deborah Beck, city recreation coordinator, said in a press release that parks and rec is excited to bring the contest back this year.

“Searching for the Golden Bucket sticker is a great reason to get out with your family or on your own and explore some of the amazing parks and trails around Nanaimo,” she said. “You may even learn something new about the parks in your area.”
