Playing a game while exploring a city, that's what's being offered in Bangor.

Downtown Bangor Partnership teamed up with the Maine Highlands to put up 23 murals around the city.

Then they added a scavenger hunt element.

Snap a picture of yourself with five different murals and post them to Instagram during the month of July.

That enters you in a drawing for a pair of tickets to the Waterfront Concerts show of your choice.

"Downtown Bangor has a lot of wonderful cultural assets in addition to being a great place for shopping and dining. We wanted to create something that we can freshen up on an annual basis that will cause people to come down here and take part in the temporary installation but also begin to fall in love with the permanent features that we have here."

Here is how to enter:

1. Snap a selfie with 5 of the wheatpaste murals scattered throughout downtown Bangor.

2. Post them to Instagram between July 1 and July 31 by using the carousel feature (the logo that looks like several photos on top of each other).

3. Use the hashtags #BangorMurals, #BGRWheatpaste, and #DowntownBangor in the caption of the post (not in the comments). The Instagram account must be public and the entry must be posted during the contest submission period.
