Pickering’s Geocache Race & Hip Hop in the Park is almost here. This much anticipated free teen event is taking place on Saturday, May 4, from 12 pm – 4 pm at the arena entrance of the Pickering Recreation Complex.
You can spend the day listening to a live DJ playing some of the top tracks, participate in graffiti art alongside some top graffiti artists, and learn some breakdance moves from world-renowned break-dancers. As you make your way through the Geocache Race, you will experience sports, culture, food, games, and free giveaways. There are lots of prizes to be won throughout the day.
There are exciting new additions that will bring even more adventure to this year’s Geocache Race. You can try out Bubble Soccer, Archery and much more, all for free. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and sometimes a pen or pencil. The geocacher signs the log with their established code name and dates it, in order to prove that they found the cache. After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it.
