- The Corporation of Hamilton invite you to join them for a month long City Scavenger Hunt. This started on October 18th (sorry, only just got the details) and will run until November 12th. There will be chances to win daily prizes, weekly prizes and a grand prize worth over $2,000. Anyone wishing to participate will need The Official City Scavenger Hunt Booklet available free of charge from City Hall and participating stores as outlined in the flyer here.

You pay $139 and receive three vouchers for three dinners (appetiser, main course, dessert and regular tea/coffee) at seven participating restaurants. There is no limit to how many times you can buy a set of vouchers and they are available now from any of the participating restaurants, which are Fourways Inn, Lido, La Trattoria, Harbourfront, Little Venice, L'Oriental and Blu Bar and Grill.
