From December 1 – January 1, 2024, head to Loveland and find our loveable, illuminated holiday gnomes scattered around downtown. Each gnome has been “adopted” and designed by a local business or organization and can easily be found by walking around our downtown core.
The hunt is free and open to everyone. Players who find the 9 gnomes downtown will be entered into a grand prize drawing, and can claim a completion prize at the Loveland Visitors Center. Three additional prizes will be given out based upon points. Have fun!
If you’d like, you can pick up a copy of the printed map at the Loveland Visitors Center (5400 Stone Creek Circle).
How to Play
STEP 1: Download the free, official Hunt for the Loveland Holiday Gnomes app – EVENTZEE. A device with cellular data is required to play this game.
STEP 2: Follow EVENTZEE’s instructions to create an account, and use the code (LOVEGNOMES) to find the Hunt for the Holiday Gnomes game. Note: the game will not be playable until 12/1/2023.
STEP 3: The app will guide you through a series of questions, challenges, and puzzles to solve. The goal is to find the nine Loveland Holiday Gnomes scattered around downtown Loveland and to complete all of the associated challenges on the app. The 10th gnome, Jack, wandered further away and his challenges are optional and NOT REQUIRED to win any prizes (except for his bonus prize)!
The overall top three point scorers in the App (visible on the Leaderboard page) as of January 1, 2024 at midnight will determine the winners of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. Please note that you do not have to get every answer correct to be eligible for prizes.
STEP 4: To be eligible for prizes, you must successfully complete all of the challenges on the app, other than those labeled as Optional. All players who successfully complete the game are eligible to receive a prize at the Loveland Visitors Center. To claim this prize, you must physically present your Challenges Completed badge to the staff at the Loveland Visitors Center anytime during business hours (Monday-Saturday 9AM-5PM and Sunday 10AM-3PM). One prize per player please. The word player refers to each account created in the app.
All of the gnomes are outdoors, and no entrance fees or purchases are required to play. The hunt can be completed in a few hours or over multiple days but must be finished by midnight on January 1st.
To win and qualify for the GRAND PRIZE and the Completion Prize, you must complete all of the challenges listed in the Eventzee app (other than those listed as optional), which is confirmed on the app via the receipt of the Challenges Completed badge. To win the other prizes, players must earn the most points in the app, which may require you to complete all the challenges. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes will be given to the players who are the top three point scorers per the Leaderboard page in the app. If there is a tie for most points, all eligible participants will be entered into a random drawing to choose our prize winners.
