The first annual Holiday Window iSpy game was launched during Moonlight Madness in November 2021.
This fun community scavenger hunt style game was a covid-friendly way to get people of all ages outside and exploring the village. Shop windows had hidden items to be found, with a chance to win $500 in prizes. It was a huge success for the village, and alot of fun for the community. We had so many notes written on the game sheets from people thanking us for giving them a fun way to explore where we live. Many people commented that they found new places and fell in love with the community spirit during the hunt.
The grand prize was $250, with 5 additional prizes of $50 - all in "Qualicum Beach Bucks" - meaning all the money stayed in the community.
It was so fun that we are bringing it back again for 2022!
