A new scavenger hunt is seeking to prove that if you look closely enough, magic is all around.
Fairy Doors of Broome County is a new contest in which participants follow a map and clues to find 15 fairy homes hidden across the region.
The self-guided tour spans from Endicott to Deposit with fairy doors constructed by artists, otherwise known as builders, set on the property of sponsors, also known as real estate agents.
If you find and take selfies with all 15, you can be entered into a raffle to win 1 of 3 four-packs of tickets to the New York Faerie Fest in Harpursville the last weekend in June.
Organizer and self-professed fairy enthusiast Traci Pena says all of the doors are different.
“There’s no 2 that are even alike. We’ve showcased each one of the artists and the sponsors (or real estate agents) on our Facebook pageso anybody could go back and look at those and see. Some of them are done by children, some are done by a couple of professional artists. So, you’re going to see all different kinds of doors.”
Also, each door will occasionally have a special rock and scroll that will lead the finder to another prize.
The map and set of clues will be released on the Magic Comes To Broome Facebook page at 12 A-M on Saturday.
