Find Buddy the Elf!

Buddy the Elf will be hiding out at a different park each week starting the week of November 23. A new clue for Buddy’s location will be posted on this webpage and our Facebook page each weekday at 12pm. Every Sunday at 9pm, Buddy will pack up and find a new park to hide out at and a new set of clues for his location will be shared.

Bring your camera to snap photos of Buddy in his hiding spot to share with us on Facebook (be sure to tag @winnetkaparkdistrict). Photos can also be uploaded via this form. The first five people to share photos with us will receive a $10 gift card to a local Winnetka business!

Guidelines

  • The first five people to share a photo of Buddy in his hiding spot each week will receive a gift card. A photo of Buddy is required to receive the gift card – a guess alone does not count.
  • An individual or family may only win one gift card throughout the five weeks, but are encouraged to continue searching for Buddy every week!
  • Please follow social distancing guidelines and wear a face covering when near others outside of your household.
  • Do not touch or move Buddy the Elf.
