CORONA — Flushing Meadows-Corona Park will close out its months-long celebration of the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs on Oct. 19 with a festival, including a concert at the Unisphere, free viewings of the NYS Pavilion and a parkwide scavenger hunt.
Competitors in the hunt will get a T-shirt and a tote bag when they meet at Queens Theatre at 10 a.m., then they'll travel around the park to find cultural institutions based on clues, getting a token at each spot.
The team with the most tokens at the end will get a prize — and runners-up will also be rewarded for their knowledge.
Prizes include gift certificates to cultural institutions and restaurants, tickets to a New York Rangers game and more, the Parks Department said.
Teams can be made up of between two and six people for the event, which will last until 5:30. The hunt is limited to 500 people and is first-come, first-served.
History buffs will also get the chance to go inside the Pavilion again, which reopened in April to kickoff the parks' anniversary celebration in April.
There will also be free lectures at the Queens Museum.
The festival closes out with a free concert by Yesterday and Today, a Beatles tribute band, which begins at 6 p.m. at the Unisphere.
Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets and to dress warm, according to the Parks Department.
