In the summer of 2020, the City of St. John's may have closed off part of Water Street to allow businesses to thrive despite COVID-19, but it became more. People loved it and enjoyed the opportunity to safely see other people in a space that linked them all together. For some, it was vital to their mental during hard times. 

So many different people were excited when it opened again in 2021. The Pedestrian Mall gave organizations such as guide to the good (g2g) a change to play games and have fun with their supporters. This year, g2g partnered with downtown businesses to create a Downtown Treasure Hunt for people of all ages to help strenght this community. 

Of all the people to go on this Treasure Hunt, two young pirates-in-the-making faced the challenges with determination and collected all the puzzle pieces. Watch us celebrate their victory that was made possible by the local businesses who took this opportunity to connect and donate all this loot!
