A family-friendly search for “hidden treasure, forgotten islands, ancient ruins and natural wonder” is set to come to RFK Stadium this weekend, according to the event’s organizer.

The Washington Area Bicyclist Association will host its second “Choose Your Own Adventure Scavenger Hunt” along the Anacostia River from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The hunt will include “riddles, unexpected challenges, trickery and exploration,” according to the group. Participants must bring a bicycle, helmet and up to four teammates. A “costume fitting of a true adventurer” is encouraged, according to WABA.

Registration is free online. Clothing from Bluejacket brewery in Navy Yard and other prizes will be awarded after the event.

“So many D.C. area residents know the Potomac [River] and its views, but far too often, we forget about the Anacostia,” said Ursula Sandstrom, WABA’s D.C. trail ranger coordinator. “Saturday is an invitation to bring the family or a team of friends to explore what D.C.’s backyard has to offer.”
