Geocachers, don’t miss the 2016 Discover L&A County Geocaching Event, happening on August 19th & 20th, 2016!
We've attracted thousands of geocachers to Lennox & Addington County since our first event in 2011. Last year, more than 900 geocachers attended L&A's third consecutive MEGA Event, including visitors from 8 Canadian provinces, 9 U.S. states, and 5 European countries! This year's event falls on 'International Geocaching Day' so we're expecting even larger crowds with more travellers from around the world!
New for 2016, we’re offering some great themed bus tours for geocachers that arrive in Lennox & Addington during the week leading up to the event. After geocaching during the day, hop on a bus and explore some sites throughout the county beginning at only $5 per person:
- Tuesday, August 16th: L&A County History Tour – Visit a sampling of the many historic sites and museums in L&A County
- Wednesday, August 17th: L&A County Stargazing Tour – Take in an amazing view of the universe at the L&A Dark Sky Viewing Area
- Thursday, August 18th: L&A County Beverage Tour – Enjoy a sampling of wines, ciders and craft brews from L&A’s award-winning producers
The popular “DLA Welcome Party” returns on Friday, August 19th at Conservation Park in Napanee. At 6:30pm, enjoy great local music, a variety of geocaching vendors, and much more (details to follow...). At 9pm, grab your flashlights and explore some fun night caches found in Lennox & Addington.
