The New Brighton Gnomes are BACK and will be staying at Driftwood Park over the holiday.
See if you can find all 15 gnomes along the path plus the one (1) bonus gnome on the Nature Trail.  Park by the New Brighton Water Treatment Plant, follow the signs, and hike until you’ve found all 15 gnomes hidden along the trail. Be sure to look high, low, far, and wide- not all gnomes like to hang out right by the trail! Take a picture or selfie with one of the gnomes and post on Facebook with the hashtag #newbrightongnomes to be entered into a drawing. Then, cross the street and head back to your car.
If you’re up for some extra hiking, see if you can find the bonus gnome along the Nature Trail too!  The gnomes will be out at Driftwood from Monday, December 21 at 10am until Sunday, December 27.
