Support Local - LaSalle's Very Merry Hunt for Berry

Berry is one of Santa’s best helpers at the North Pole but during a recent visit to LaSalle with Santa he got a little distracted. He’s been spotted all over LaSalle and we need your help to identify all those spots so we can help Santa get Berry back to the North Pole.

To help Santa, you can report Berry’s location using the Goosechase App, or by filling out one of our Hunt for Berry cards that are available at one of the participating businesses in Town.

Santa has purchased gift cards from local businesses throughout LaSalle to help us reward you for helping to hunt for Berry. Be sure to enter a report in Goosechase or submit a Hunt for Berry card at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex or LaSalle Branch of the Essex County Library. We will have draws every Thursday from December 2 to December 16. The grand prize will be drawn on December 23.

To join the Very Merry Hunt for Berry, download the Goosechase app from the App Store or Google Play Store or visit one of the participating businesses to pick up your Hunt for Berry card. When you spot Berry, upload a photo to Goosechase and identify the number Berry was wearing, or fill out the Hunt for Berry card. Entries through Goosechase will automatically be entered in our weekly and grand prize draws. For those participating using the Hunt for Berry cards, drop off your submissions at the Vollmer Complex or at the LaSalle Library and you will be included in the weekly and grand prize draws.

Remember, don’t touch Berry if you spot him, we wouldn’t want him to lose his magic!
