Celebrate our local equity heroes on a scavenger hunt through downtown Bangor where you can collect beads to build your own bracelet. Once you have all your beads collected, proceed to the bracelet making table in Hamlin Park next to the youth tent for cord to put it all together. 

You can follow the clues in order for an organized path through downtown, or take them in any order you please.

Each clue has a scrambled letter hint to help you find the location.
