Christmas Presents

The Race for Christmas!

Have you and your family been looking for a new Christmas tradition? Or maybe something to do during a pandemic? Well, you are in the right place. Welcome to the Race for Christmas!

What is the Race for Christmas?

  • The Race for Christmas is a treasure hunt, of sorts, with prizes at every corner and an opportunity to win Christmas for your family and families in need!

  • Every Friday starting November 13th, we will be posting riddles that are clues. These riddles will lead you to different locations around town.

  • At these locations, there will be QR codes that will take you online to a Master Riddle that must be solved.

  • Each week, the first person to solve the Master Riddle wins a prize!

  • Once the final riddle is found, the first person to enter the answers to all five Master Riddles on our site wins a $500 Christmas shopping spree all over Ketchikan. Alaska Pest Management will match that amount and donate it to a local nonprofit to help families in need!
