Teens in Duluth gathered to bring their community together and search for clues on a rainy Saturday.

"Scavaganza" was an on-foot scavenger hunt that took place throughout Downtown Duluth and Canal Park. Youth for Duluth, a service organization by teens and for teens, put on the event.

Organizer Lauren Hesch said the goal was to bring the youth of the city together.

"The contestants are signing up with a partner and then we're matching them up with another pair of partners from another school," she said. "So they'll be with a friend that they know and a friend that they've yet to meet. ... It's supposed to be a community builder, so we're trying to have teens meet other teens."

Teams had to search for 82 clues, take pictures of them and upload them to Twitter with the hashtag "Scavaganza." The winners got a lunch date with Duluth Mayor Don Ness.
