Thanks for playing! All answer submissions have been received.
Website Scavenger Hunt
In the spirit of spring, we have released a number of desert critters and cacti onto the website! They can be found hidden throughout various images and places. Click through the dmfss.com webpages and see if you can find them all... you'll get 1 point for every correct critter spot and 2 points for every correct *blooming* cactus spot!
You can only submit your answers ONCE, so be sure to wait until you've found everything that you can!
HINT: The Hopapalooza & Salted Caramel Mocha rabbits, and any cactus *NOT* in bloom don't count.
The Website Scavenger Hunt has concluded. Thanks for playing!
(You have until Wednesday, April 28 to submit your answers.)
To reward our frequent food/drinks purchasers, we've created a very special points-earning opportunity at Stripes Cafe and Sports Hub! During Hopapalooza, qualifying weekly purchases will earn you a plastic egg with a mystery amount of extra points hidden inside. Be sure to tell your server that you're playing Hopapalooza when making your purchase so they give you an egg!

Chips & Queso
Between our own pets and the ample wildlife that surrounds us in Tucson, we know you have some fun, cute, and/or funny pictures or videos of critters... and we want to see them! Whether you want to show off your pet doing an awesome trick (or being a doofus), or want to showcase an epic animal sighting you captured while hiking, any and all critter spots are accepted.
Submit a short video or image of your own animals or any wildlife you've encountered in the desert for an extra 10 points per participant. We will make a compilation video showcasing everybody's greatest finds and post it onto our Facebook page after Hopapalooza ends!
Actual "critter spot" of my porch lizard, Alfonso!
Here's What You Could Win
By registering to play in Hopapalooza, any activities or qualifying purchases you complete throughout the month will earn you points! For every point you earn, your name will be entered that many times in the final prize drawing pool.
Prize winners will be drawn using a random name generator on Friday, April 30! We will list the winners on Facebook and contact each one individually to schedule curbside prize pick-up.
Month of the Military Child
Kid's Coloring Contest
In celebration of Month of the Military Child, we want to offer your spectacular kiddo(s) the chance to win a Power Wheels ride-on car! Two lucky winners will be selected at random from the pool of participants. The coloring sheet is themed "Bloom Where You're Planted" to showcase not only the talent but also the resiliency of our community's amazing kids. Children ages 3-8 are eligible to win the cars.
To enter, first make sure you're registered for Hopapalooza. Then, just stop by The Landing Community Center or DM Lanes to collect a coloring sheet for your child(ren) to complete. You can also download one online at the link below. After your child has completed the coloring sheet, simply return it to either of those facilities (or send it to us via email or Messenger), fill out the completion form, and we'll get you entered into the prize drawing pool for the cars!
Coloring sheets must be turned in by Wednesday, April 28.
Give your child a certficiate for being awesome!

Toy Bag Giveaway
To further celebrate Month of the Military Child, we will be giving out bags of toys for FREE on Thursday, April 22! The operation will be done on a first-come, first-served basis from 10AM-1PM or until supplies run out, so no need to make a reservation. We'll be located at the Auto Hobby building (Bldg 4531), and the pick-up will be operated as a drive-thru.
Each family will receive ONE bag that's full to the brim with a variety of toys and games! This isn't a points-earning opportunity, it's just a way for us to give back to our amazing community. We will have ~300 bags to give away until they're gone.
