SILK ROAD 2022 - HUNT & EVENT

4 weeks ago 37

Historical Hunts Ltd. presents the 12th Annual Silk Road Hunt & Event (4-26 June 2022).  Our theme this year is "Crossroads: Japan."  Therefore, when you arrive at the event, you will find yourself in a place much like Edo Period Japan!

The Hunt is grid-wide, which means hunters will hop store-to-store following landmarks inside each hunt item.  The Event is in Mieville Shelley, at a brand new mega-build created for high visibility and smooth traffic flow.

There are tons of free gifts and top-quality merchandise available.  Seventy merchants are participating, with a wide range of decor, clothing, jewelry, furniture, and full perm items for your shopping enjoyment.  For a full list of shops, please view our blog (https://historicalhunts.blogspot.com) and click "Participating!" at the top.  The list of merchants includes Sky Willow, Grendels, Fairey Angel Creations, Sanna - Science and Art, Texworks, Timeless Textures, Pixel Box, Kisetsu, ~Lantian/Flox~, Storybook Cats, Grasshopper St., and many more!

There is also great entertainment on-hand, including the very popular group: "Keeba's Tiny Maniacs!"  In addition, we offer traditional dancers, an Asian violinist, wandering storytellers, live DJs, haiku and fishing contests, an art show, and four big, costume-themed parties.

Lastly, there is a game at the Silk Road Event called the "Clicky Kitsune Quest."  Once visitors get the free HUD at the Arrival Area, they can wander and click randomly-appearing kitsune (foxes) for points.  These Clicky Kitsune are spread throughout the event, so visitors are encouraged to explore.  Points can be traded at any time for a wide range of gifts, available at participating merchants' Event booths.  The entire system is FREE, and past, similar games have proven highly popular.

(About the date: Because we open on the 33rd Anniversary of Tiananmen Square, we will hold a special ceremony to honor those who have been lost.  There will be a candle-lighting ceremony at the Arrival Area on Friday 3 June, 5pm SLT.  We will also keep a memorial candle burning throughout the month at the Shinto Shrine.)
