Scavenger Hunt

It’s Erasmus’ Hatch Day Celebration and his dragon friends have lost their way to the party!

Since you’re invited, will you help locate the elusive party goers so they can partake in the festivities? Throw your party hat on, come to downtown and find the disoriented dragons for a chance to win prizes and have a ball doing it!


Beginning April 1, dragons (a total of 30) will be hidden throughout downtown Renton for the annual Hatch Day Celebration!

This is a FREE and safe self adventure so grab your party gear, download a Hatch Day scorecard, and find ten (10) different dragons. Fill out the scorecard with the dragons you’ve found, and enter it for a chance to win gift cards from our fabulous downtown merchants! 


Downtown Renton

Erasmus’ friends are lost throughout downtown and along the path to visit their rooftop friend on the corner of S 3rd and Wells Ave S. Please don’t take or move the dragons, we want everyone to be able to enjoy this COVID-safe, activity.
