“Bridge Day, one of the largest extreme sports event in the world, is held annually on the third Saturday in October in Fayette County, West Virginia (WV), USA. Hundreds of BASE jumpers and nearly 80,000 spectators are expected to attend the event.” –OfficialBridgeDay.com
And of course Active Southern West Virginia is going to have a hand in highlighting this day! Join us in our first ever Bridge Day event, Active SWV: New River Gorge Bridge Day Scavenger Hunt. This will be a photograph hunt with the goal to take a picture of yourself, friends, and family doing the items or capturing the action on the list. For your pictures to count follow Active Southern West Virginia on Instagram, @activeswv, then post the pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #activeSWV and the hashtag specific to that item. The scavenger list will be released the morning of Bridge Day on the Active SWV Instagram page with a winner announced at 5:00pm. Additional scavenger hunt lists will be at participating booths on the bridge.
Participating in this event will allow Bridge Day goers to experience the most unique and popular spots in the New River Gorge and Fayetteville area as well as get a little workout in for the day. The hunt will include walking from location to location to grab a picture with different features of the area and some items even include striking a pose.
