Elf On The Shelf

November 24 @ 10:00 am - December 17 @ 5:00 pm

The Elves have flown back to the North Pole to help Santa with Christmas! They’ll be back in 2023 for a whole new adventure!

Did you hear the great news? Santa is sending a team of “Scout Elves” to Downtown Coeur d’Alene! Presented by STCU, the Coeur d’Alene Scout Elves will land in town to start a fun holiday scavenger hunt on Friday, November 25 and Santa has asked them to scout every Friday -Sunday through December 18. Just like all elves, these ones are sneaky and hideout in cups of hot cocoa, cozy boutique sweaters, and other silly places!  Keep your eyes peeled for one of the dozens of Coeur d’Alene Scout Elves hiding throughout the downtown corridor and you could win prizes from Santa himself!

Pick up your map … or print it at home!
