PRCR to host Family Gobblequest at Joyner Park Nov. 16

Thursday, October 17, 2019 - 3:17pm

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department is inviting local families to participate in the second annual Family Gobblequest on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 10 a.m. at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road.

Gobblequest is an opportunity for families to spend a morning together outdoors participating in an activity similar to a scavenger hunt. Turkey cutouts will be hidden throughout Joyner Park’s various trails and greenways. Families that “find” one of the turkey cutouts can redeem it for a special award (limit one per family).

The event is $5 per child, and space is limited. Pre-registration is required at

Following the turkey hunt, the festivities will move inside the Joyner Park Community Center for a free screening of the movie “Free Birds.”

As part of this special event, the PRCR Department will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items for the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry. Tri-Area Ministry will distribute the donated food items to people in need in our community.
