Scavenger Hunt Instagram-style

How it works


On Thursday and Friday, June 27-28 grab your smartphone and fire up Instagram. Head out to any/all hot spots listed below. While on site, take advantage of any BTVSMD special offers and

  • Using the Instagram app, snap a photo of something onsite, like the sign or your newly acquired swag, etc.
  • Tag that photo with #btvsmd13 on Instagram so it will upload right into that collection (don’t forget the #). Check off whatever spots to go to. Each photo uploaded with that tag gets you a chance to win a prize to be drawn for at the end of the day.
  • Check in to that spot with Facebook and/or Foursquare. Why not LEAVE A TIP when checking in on Foursquare?
  • Do your hunting and tagging anytime Thurs-Fri June 27-28 until 5:00pm Friday afternoon, June 28.
