Medallion Hunt Begins Friday

KSAL Staff - May 22, 2016 6:30 am

Nick Kingan and his son Declan found the medallion last year. It was rock-shaped, and located in a sandstone and concrete retaining wall in Riverside Park, north of Elm Street.

Smoky Hill River Festival Medallion Quest fans are gearing up for this year’s hunt. The 2016 Smoky Hill River Festival Medallion Quest begins on Friday afternoon. The first clue will announced live in Oakdale Park, and on the radio, during a free concert in Oakdale Park at the Eric Stein Stage.

The first clue will be announced at around 1:00. Alpha Media Salina radio station Newsradio 1150 KSAL will broadcast the concert, and the clue announcement. The concert begins at 12:30, and concludes at 1:00 when the clue is announced.

There will be only 1 clue released on the first day. After the first clue is announced Friday, beginning Saturday two clues will be released daily, at 7:30 in the morning and 5:30 in the evening, until the medallion is found.

Clues can be heard on the radio, and seen online here on KSAL.COM. They will originate from the Medallion Quest page of the River Festival website. The clues will also be posted on the west entry doors of the Arts and Humanities office located at 211 W. Iron Ave.

The hand-crafted art medallion will be hidden on public property somewhere in Salina.

A Festival Quest Weekend Package will be awarded to the first-eligible person to find the medallion and follow its direction to claim the prize.

The prize package includes:

  • $2,000 cash
  • $2,000 in Festival Gift Certificates, to be used toward purchases in the Fine Art Show, Four Rivers Craft Show, or the Art/Craft Demonstration Area
  • Four Festival admission Buttons
  • One on-ground Festival parking pass (weather permitting)
  • Invitation for four to the Festival’s Art Patron Breakfast on June 13
  • Assorted Festival T-shirts, entertainer’s CDs, and other Festival memorabilia
