  • Schweizer Fest Scavenger Hunt

    The News’ Schweizer Fest scavenger hunt is back. These photos were taken in Tell City and are visible from city streets, alleys or sidewalks. All are west of 12th Street.

    This year’s photos, we hope, are a mixture of easy-to-identify landmarks as well as a few that may be hard to find.
    What we need from you are locations, being as specific as possible.

    We’ll place all the correct entries, or those who correctly identify the most photos, into a hat. The winner of the drawing will win a one-year subscription to The News.
