PokémonGo with an Oregon Twist!

Saturday, October 8
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

The Scavenger Hunt starts at the Oregon Library.

Pokémon Go is a huge craze sweeping the world! Before all these devices, people used to have no tech scavenger hunts. We are going to combine the two in the community event Pokemon Oregon WI.   Whether you are techie or a Luddite, put on your walking shoes for a Poke-adventure!

The Scavenger Hunt starts at the Library and takes people to seven other locations/"Pokestops" in downtown Oregon.
