Skeleton search starts Friday in Tonganoxie

Halloween fun soon will be returning to Tonganoxie. The annual Skeleton Scavenger Hunt will help folks get into the holiday mood. The six-day hunt starts Friday and finishes up Oct. 26. There will be 250 skeletons available, so the contest is open to the first 250 participants. Clues can all be found inside the Tonganoxie city limits. Multiple clues will be given. Those clues will lead hunters to the next clues or bones. Once the skeleton is completed and turned in, folks will receive a Gambino’s coupon for a free pizza and will be entered into a drawing for one of 10 $10 cash prizes from Skeet Real Estate.
