Tiger Tiger Burning Bright

I went on a scavenger hunt today with my family. We were hunting Tigers.

As this is the year of the tiger, there are 25 tiger sculptures around Cleveland’s Asiatown.  The sculptures are all decorated by local artists and are sponsored by area businesses. The only criticism I have about this program, which according to the St. Clair Superior Development Corporation has been going for 5 years now, is that the sculptures are too far apart to walk between (plus the neighborhood(s) not the best so it’s not really advisable to be walking around by some of these sculptures).

I love the whole idea of this program.  This is the second year my family has gone on this scavenger hunt.  Our success rate was higher this year as we found 23 or 25 of the sculptures.
