Announcing the Great Ferndale Midsummer Mystery July 1 – 24

Submitted by: City of Ferndale

Thanks to a Project Neighborly grant from the Whatcom Community Foundation, the City of Ferndale is able to host the Great Ferndale Midsummer Mystery, a city-wide scavenger hunt from July 1 -24. Similar to the Great Ferndale Treasure Hunt last year, this adventure encourages residents to meet their neighbors, explore their city and solve the mystery of who stole the spirit of Ferndale!

To participate, grab a scorecard from the city website, or found in person at City Hall or at Food Truck Fridays (June 1 and July 6) at Star Park. The scorecard keeps track of the clues found and the points earned.

Clues will be distributed through the city’s Facebook page, twitter account and posted at City Hall, the Ferndale Library and the Ferndale Visitor Center. The first clue will be released Sat. July 1, and then after that it is every Tuesday and Friday until July 20.

All participants will receive a medal, but the first, second and third place winners will also receive a cash prize, fourth through sixth place winners will receive gift certificates and everyone who participates will feel a sense of accomplishment and fun.

More details are available at This event is part of the City of Ferndale’s 2018 Summer of Fun.
