The Great Locomotive Railroad Roam, a scavenger hunt that focuses on local history, runs from Oct. 9 to Oct. 19. The Roam replaces the museum’s annual gala, which was canceled this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proceeds benefit the Kennesaw Museum Foundation in support of the Southern Museum. All donations are tax-deductible.

“We are grateful for the support the community normally shows us every year during our gala,” said Dr. Richard Banz, executive director of the Southern Museum. “While we are disappointed we had to cancel our gala, the scavenger hunt is an opportunity to support the museum in a fun way.”

North Georgia Staffing is the title sponsor and Image360 in Kennesaw is the supporting sponsor.

The Roam is $25 per team to enter. After registering, participants will receive a list of clues and specific instructions.

Teams then must submit their entries to the Roam’s Facebook page by 4 p.m. on Oct. 19. A committee will select winners in several categories, including creativity.
