Lucky Route 13 – Photo Contest Closes September 30th

Ride the scenic Central Alberta Highway 13 this summer and win prizes for the best photographs in a summer long photo scavenger hunt! Contest closes September 30th!
Tourism Camrose is excited to be working in partnership with communities along Highway 13 from Wetaskiwin to Provost for the inaugural 2017 Tour and Photo Scavenger Hunt this summer! The goal of this cooperative project is to attract and increase tourism all the way down Highway 13 to the Saskatchewan border.
In order to raise interest in the route and add even more fun; we will have a photo scavenger hunt over the summer riding months. Each participating community has identified two iconic places that riders must take pictures of (one being a selfie to prove they actually were there).
