About The Post Hunt

Tom Shroder, Dave Barry and Gene Weingarten tell you more.

It's Wild. It's Wacky. It's the Post Hunt!

Mark your calendars for May 18 and get ready for the most fun you'll have all year. The Post Hunt is an exciting urban safari made up of brain-teasing puzzles woven into the landscape of Washington, D.C.'s Penn Quarter neighborhood. The puzzles are challenging, crazy and fun for all ages. Work in teams to solve them and compete to win a grand prize trip to Florida. All you need to bring is your Sunday, May 18 copy of The Washington Post Magazine.
