Follow Your Heart Treasure Hunt Returns!

Blog Post - January 11, 2022

Category: What's New

We had so much fun in 2021, that we're bringing back the Follow Your Heart Treasure Hunt. In fact, it is becoming an annual tradition, thanks to the overwhelming generosity of Barrio Glassworks glassblowing studio, retail, and art gallery.

On Saturday, February 12th and Sunday, February 13th, 2022, be on the lookout for unique, hand-blown glass hearts, courtesy of Barrio Glassworks when you are out and about, exploring and enjoying Carlsbad Village. They will be hidden at iconic locations in the Village, at historical locations, and, well, hidden in plain site. We want you to find them and we wish you the best of luck on your hunt!

Fifty glass hearts will be hidden over a period of two days at some of the most iconic and visited locations in downtown Carlsbad. If you find a heart, you are done with the hunt, and it is all yours to keep! But be sure to register your heart, online, for a chance to win a pirvate glassblowing experience courtesy of Barrio Glassworks.

For more information on this fun, outdoor activation, that is designed for the whole family to enjoy, visit the Follow Your Heart Treasure Hunt page on the Carlsbad Village Association (CVA) website. And while you are in the Village, consider joining us for our 5th annual blood drive to help make a difference in someone's life. Details below.
