PITTSFIELD, Mass. Downtown Pittsfield, Inc. and the Berkshire Athenaeum will continue the Downtown Pittsfield StoryWalk of Ty Allan Jackson's book "When I Close My Eyes" through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 6, 2021.
They have partnered with CozQuest for a free, family-friendly Treasure Hunt along the StoryWalk route from Saturday, Aug. 28 through Monday, Sept. 6, 2021. Kids will be able to solve "Spot Cozmo" picture puzzles to find hidden QR codes that will unlock treasure at local businesses.
