Geocache Description:

Each year we invite the worldwide geocaching community to join us in Seattle for the Geocaching Block Party. No matter how long you’ve been geocaching—and even if you’ve never even heard of geocaching—there are plenty of fun events, delicious food, interactive exhibits and vendors.


The main event takes place on Saturday, August 15, from 11am to 5pm, but the fun lasts all weekend with events like the Geocaching International Film Festival on Friday and the Washington State Geocaching Association’s Going APE Mega-Event on Sunday.

ITINERARY
While the main event is on Saturday, the celebration takes place all weekend—not to mention any down time can be spent finding some of Seattle’s amazing geocaches.
