New Oxford Holiday Hunt, brought to you by the New Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce
New Oxford Holiday Hunt, brought to you by the New Oxford Area Chamber of
Commerce and presenting sponsor Members 1st Federal Credit Union, officially kicks off on Saturday,
December 12. The event features a scavenger hunt, business decorating contest and residential decorating
competition. This is the first year for the event, which is similar to New Oxford Harvest Hunt, held in October.
Holiday Hunt will run through Sunday, December 27.
Community members are invited to pick up a booklet at the New Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce or at
participating businesses around town starting the Friday before the event. For the scavenger hunt,
participants will be looking for a hidden snowflake at each of the 27 participating businesses around town. In
an effort to accommodate different comfort levels during the ongoing pandemic, approximately half of the
snowflakes are visible from the outside of businesses and do not require entry to find. For the snowflakes
hidden inside businesses, participants are asked to wear a mask, practice social distancing and respect the
safety guidelines put in place by individual businesses.
Participants will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite decorated businesses and favorite
decorated residences in the 17350 zip code. The residential decorating competition, called Light Up New
Oxford, is an opportunity for the community to show their spirit this holiday season. A guide featuring the
participating residences will be available alongside the Holiday Hunt event booklet at the Chamber office,
participating businesses and at newoxford.org.
This event is free and perfect for families looking for something to do in the absence of many of the annual
holiday events in our area. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the scavenger hunt, business decorating
contest and residential decorating competition. Additional information is available at newoxford.org and on
the New Oxford Holiday Hunt Facebook event page.
In addition to Members 1st Federal Credit Union, the New Oxford Harvest Hunt is also made possible through
the support of the following sponsors: ACNB Bank, Adams Electric Cooperative, Inc., Aero Energy, Lyle R Pitner
State Farm, Miller-Hanover Insurance and Sleighter's Furniture & Sleep Shop.
