Announcing the Great Ferndale Midsummer Mystery July 1st – 24th

Thanks to a Project Neighborly grant from the Whatcom Community Foundation, the City of Ferndale is able to host the Great Ferndale Midsummer Mystery, a city-wide scavenger hunt from July 1st -24th. Similar to the Great Ferndale Treasure Hunt last year, this adventure encourages residents to meet their neighbors, explore their city and solve the mystery of who stole the spirit of Ferndale!

To participate, grab a scorecard which can be downloaded by clicking here, or found at City Hall or at Food Truck Fridays (June 1st and July 6th) at Star Park. The scorecard keeps track of the clues found and the points earned.

Clues will be distributed through the City’s facebook page (found here), twitter account (found here) and posted at City Hall, the Ferndale Library and the Ferndale Visitor Center. The first clue will be released Sat. July 1st, and then after that it is every Tuesday and Friday until July 20th.

All participants will receive a prize, but the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will also receive a cash prize, 4th-6th place winners will receive gift certificates and everyone who participates will feel a sense of accomplishment and fun.

More details are available at This event is part of the City of Ferndale’s 2018 Summer of Fun.
