A Scavenger Hunt


     It’s the time of year for fun, family and friends. Get a group together or enjoy some self-care alone time and join the “hunt” across Livingston for “Rufus The Elf”. Rufus is an adorable elf made of lights that travels across Livingston. There will be clues announced in this article to help find Rufus at all his favorite places. This event starts November 22nd and goes until December 13th. This article will be updated throughout the event with the clues

     Rufus will be all over Livingston for two weeks. He will remain in the same spot for only two days at a time though. Make sure to check on the Livingston Special Events & Trade Days Facebook page or right here at for clues to where Rufus will be. Catch him while he is at each spot and get a chance to earn some Christmas money. Prizes range from $50 to $200 based on how many times Rufus the Elf is correctly found around town and listed on the form.


     A Scavenger Hunt looking for Rufus The Elf is just one of the many holiday events that are happening in Livingston. There will be time with Santa at various places around town, a Christmas Parade, the annual Christmas Toy Train Village, and more. 


     The Livingston Specialty Merchants’ Guild and Livingston Main Street invite one and all to enjoy themselves around town for this event and all the other fun events throughout the holiday season
