The Witch Hunt is a photo scavenger hunt throughout the Swift-Cantrell Park. There will be 13 witches hidden around and the photo hints will be posted on the Kennesaw Parks & Rec Facebook and Instagram stories so be sure to follow us. We will be releasing photo clues about their locations the day of the event, so keep checking our page for hints. The winner of our Witch Hunt will receive a $100 gift card to Honeysuckle Biscuits and Bakery! Good luck!


A kid-friendly Halloween themed craft will be available at the General Pavilion to be made on site or to take home. One per person, available while supplies last.
