LINCOLN SQUARE — Lincoln Square's past comes to life this weekend with a scavenger hunt set at the neighborhood's historic sites.

The Welles Park gazebo, 2333 W. Sunnyside Ave., serves as the kickoff point, 10 a.m. Saturday.

Form a team (or come solo and make new friends), pick up a map and then head out to explore the neighborhood and learn a little something about its history. Return to the gazebo with completed map by 1 p.m. for treats and prizes.

The event, hosted by Forward Chicago, is open to people of all ages. Cost is $5 for adults and free for children under 14, with advance registration available online.

In case of rain, the scavenger hunt will take place on Sunday.
