Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation to host annual Candy Cane Hunt Nov. 18

November 12, 2017--12:12 p.m.


It's the most wonderful time of the year and it is right around the corner! Join us for the fifth annual Downtown Candy Cane Hunt presented by Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation in collaboration with the Downtown Development Authority. Children can kick-off the holiday season by grabbing as many candy canes and holiday candy as they can! The hunt is for children 10 & under and will take place at the Town Green at 1pm.

This event is made possible by generous sponsors who help us cover the Town Green with thousands of candy canes! Thank you to the following sponsors: Publix, Heritage First Bank, David Prusakowski State Farm, Stella Blu Cosmetic Boutique, and Kelly Educational Staffing. Scoop and Cookie of sweetFrog, the Publix dinosaur, the Chick-fil-A cow, and Sparky from the Rome Fire Department will be at the Candy Cane Hunt along with Santa and Mrs. Clause!

“This event is a great start to the holiday season!” says Sarah Grimes, Program Coordinator at Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation. “We are excited to continue our collaboration with the Downtown Development Authority and our wonderful sponsors to make this event possible for the children of the community.

The Downtown Development Authority will have Trolley Rides that will pick up and drop off at the Town Green from 11am-3pm. Mr. & Mrs. Claus will be riding along to take pictures with children!
