Geochachers are heading to Truro this summer for Maritime Mega

Geochachers are planning to descend on the Maritimes this summer.

About 500 people are expected to be in Truro, Nova Scotia for the fourth Maritime Mega geocaching event starting July 29th.

Geocaching is an outdoor game where players find hidden containers using a GPS or smartphone app and then log it online.

Organizers say people are coming from the Netherlands, the US and western Canada.
