Geocaching Block Party!

Every third Saturday of August, Geocaching.com hosts the Geocaching Block Party in Fremont. This is a free event open to anyone. There will be several awesome geocaches in the area to find and it's a great opportunity to meet up with other local geocachers. Just come and enjoy the festivities throughout the day! In the evening, the first ever Geocaching International Film Festival will be taking place. More information can be found at: http://www.geocachingblockparty.com/

 

UPDATED INFO AUGUST 13:

There isn't actually a designated meeting place and time, I just put the hours for the event as I think it will be fun for anyone interested in geocaching or simply interested in learning more about it.  There is a meet-up "lounge" at the event so that would be a good spot for any meetup.com members to meet if they'd like to go caching together as a group (there will be plenty of geocaches to find!). 

For ease of planning, I will suggest that anyone who wants to enjoy the event as a group, to meet at the lounge area at noon.  This will be shortly after the group photo and other event stuff you may not want to miss!  I'll be working at the event so likely won't be able to join you, but please feel free to stop by the Merch booth just around the corner from the lounge to say hi before you find the geocaches in the area. :)

If you're new to geocaching, there will be a "discover geocaching" booth where you can find information about getting started.  If you're a veteran, there will be new geocaches going live before the event, so even if you've found most of the geocaches in Fremont, there will be new ones to find!

If you plan to attend, you may also want to log your 'will attend' on the following page:

There will be geocachers from all over the world attending this event and they are great resources if you're just learning about geocaching.  Don't be afraid to strike up a conversation and make some new friends. It'll be a very friendly crowd. :)

    Last year they had a meet-up area that was in the back in an area with tables and chairs to eat at. Perhaps this group could pick a time to meet there.

      Yes, there will be a meet-up area again this year. I think that would be a great place if anyone wants to meet up.
