The opportunity to hang out with a sasquatch spurred one family not just to enter the Ocean Park Amazing Race, but to win it.

The race – which was held on Family Day last week – was won by the Tyler family, who entered the event after one of their children saw a photo of the Amazing Race mascot – the sasquatch-like Creature of Kwomais Park – in an earlier edition of the Peace Arch News and wanted to take part as a result.

In the amazing-race style event Feb. 10, families received a package of challenge cards, which included brain teasers, physical challenges and Ocean Park history questions, as well as challenges in which family members had to identify community landmarks.

In total, 20 families took part.

Proceeds from the event – registration was $25 per family – will be put towards the revitalization of Fun Fun Park (1472 128 St.).
