The annual Fall Foliage Leaf hunt, a traditional popular feature of Fall Foliage Festival Week, has returned after a hiatus of one year. It starts September 23rd. This year the committee has revealed that there will be 20 colorful leaves hidden in North Adams, Adams, Cheshire, Florida and Williamstown. When a leaf is found it must be brought to the Mayor's Office of Tourism at City Hall 10 Main St. North Adams, to claim a prize. One prize per household please. Prizes are generously donated by area merchants., including Pedrin’s, Boston Seafoods, Freight Yard Pub, Chee’s, Big Y, North Adams Museum, Planet Fitness, Walmart and Wild Oats. A second set of clues will be announced in the event of unclaimed leaves. The committee has instituted a new procedure whereby one plastic bag with a yellow or orange leaf should be removed and brought to Suzy Helme’s office and another with a green leaf should be left at the site so that subsequent hunters will know they correctly solved the clue but someone already claimed the prize-winning leaf. A complete list of winners, locations and sponsors will be released in October.
