The hunt is expected to run until 9 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 31, and the winners will receive $25,000.
The game is expected do a great job of catching people off guard.
“People can really be overwhelmed and they don’t really know what they’re doing,” said Tim Stenzel, owner of Lakelands Real Estate.
“It’s a little bit of a social experiment for the community, which is what it’s all about.
And it’s fun to see how people react.”
People who participate in the scavenger craze will be asked to share photos of themselves posing in a variety of poses, and they will be rewarded with prizes ranging from free ice cream to a custom custom-made Halloween mask.
It’s the perfect opportunity for people to get a good feel for what to expect when it comes to Halloween in Lakeland.
“They’re going to be surprised at how quickly they’re going,” Stenelz said.
Stenzel has been holding the virtual scavenge for years, and he has seen an uptick in the number of people wanting to take part.
“We’ve seen an increase in the amount of people who are looking for this game and participating in it,” he said.
“The first couple of weeks it was a lot of people, and then people started asking for the rules and stuff.
But it’s been a really good experience for everybody involved.
People can participate in this game for free and receive cash prizes ranging between $25 to $50, depending on their number of participating, and more than 100 different items will be available.
There are different masks, costumes and even a full-body costume.”
For those who are really good, it’s a fun challenge,” Stenszel said.
Some of the items available include a $50 mask, a $100 costume and a $250 mask.
Stenszel says he hopes to see more people participating in the craze and is encouraging people to send photos of them posing in their Halloween costumes to their favorite Facebook account.
