Aug. 24, dragon keepers of all ages descended upon the city of Redmond to search and find dragons around town during OneRedmond’s, The Return of the Dragon: A Digital Scavenger Hunt.

Now in its second year, hundreds of people came out to play this made-for-Redmond event, according to a press release. The Redmond community of dragon keepers accepted the challenge to find and return dragons and succeeded in their quest.

The Dragon Master Balrin, also known as Arnav, proved worthy of the name, discovering 211 dragons, including four of the rarest of dragons at local businesses Redmond Senior Housing, DigiPen, Rudy’s and Seattle Marriott Redmond, the release states.

“We love to see the fun that our dragon event brings to our community and its businesses,” One Redmond executive director Kristina Hudson said in the release. “Part of the mission of our community foundation is to activate the city and to provide family friendly events that connect the community to our local businesses. The Return of the Dragon: A Digital Scavenger Hunt does it all.”

Production of this event was made possible through a partnership among OneRedmond, Daring Heroes, Bit Toys and a grant from Experience Redmond, the release states. Fourteen local businesses had dragons hiding in their realms: Banner Bank, Red Way Storage, DigiPen, Seattle Marriott Redmond, PetPro’s, Redmond Heights, Zbrio Salon, Smile Studios, Rudy’s Barber, Super Jock n’Jill, Brick and Mortar Books, Pedego, Staples and the Archer Hotel.

For more fun this year, OneRedmond will host the “World’s Largest Game of Simon” on Sept. 13 and 14 at the Downtown Park in Redmond. The community is invited to see teams compete and attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records.
