The Downtown Mansfield Scavenger Hunt is back in July 2015! For the entire month of July, kids can search for the image of one of the Carrousel animals in businesses around the downtown area. Prizes can be claimed after finding certain a certain number of them. On Saturday, August 1 we’ll have a party at the Carrousel for everyone who found the animal 20 or more times with carrousel rides, cookies, and prizes.
Now, allow us to introduce Bananas the Monkey, Mansfield’s Pioneering Primate! You’ll recognize Bananas from the Richland Carrousel Park where she hides beneath the giraffe’s leaf saddle. There’s only so much you can see from under there! Bananas is a curious little monkey and wants to see the sights, but she would like some friends to go with her. She needs an intrepid group of explorers to help her discover our city. We have hidden Banana’s picture all around downtown — find as many as you can in the month of July to prove your adventurous spirit. On August 1st at the Carrousel, Bananas will pick her exploration team. Welcome to the jungle!
