GOOGLE SCAVENGER HUNT: Google is excited to announce their first annual block party in Fremont to be held in mid-July. This event will include a scavenger hunt for employees to take place throughout Fremont, hopefully including your businesses! The goal is to showcase local Fremont businesses with their employees through a fun, interactive afternoon from 2pm-6pm with a closing party at the office at 5pm. The plan is to send Google employees on tours throughout Fremont in small teams, during which they will accomplish tasks and activities at participating businesses. They hope to familiarize Google employees with this incredible neighborhood, while also driving economic value and new customers to your businesses!
