Finding Bigfoot

Have you heard there have been sightings of Bigfoot in Novi? Weekly, Bigfoot will travel to different parks, buildings and shopping destinations in Novi. Three clues will be given weekly on the Novi Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Facebook page to help you find him. Post a photo of you and your family in the comments of that week’s clues when you find Bigfoot, and the family that finds Bigfoot the most will win a free week of camp at either Lakeshore or PowerPlay.

Make sure to join us at the kickoff event hosted by the Novi Library on Saturday, Jan 6 from 3-5pm.
