How much do you love YYC? Or better yet, how well do you know YYC?

November 2 was #loveyycday and we teamed up with Local Laundry to create a photo hunt for you and a friend to explore and enjoy some of our favourite YYC locations. 

And like every good hunt, there was treasure at the end — a limited edition CBC branded Local Laundry sweatshirt! 


Take a crack at the riddles below to unlock our photo hunt locations:

  1. "Step inside my giant white head, a photo here you won't want to forget."

  2. "A bridge that connects communities, a symbol we built that's made of peace."

  3. "Four legged creatures roam around this space, any park really where play takes place."

  4. "You'll find this artwork in public no doubt, displayed across storeys just hanging out."

  5. "Snack here, drink there — show us the best place you love to share."

  6. "Teams of red across our city, which favourite sport of yours, makes you scream YYC!"
