Dee Heili searches for the medallion in Jerry Ivey Park Sunday morning.
The hunt for the 2014 Smoky Hill River Festival Medallion is underway. Medallion hunters were out over the weekend in parks and other public locations around Salina.
Some started Friday afternoon, when the first clue was announced. During a live event in Oakdale Park the clue TO PLACE YOUR CAR got things started. Clues were released over the weekend, one early Saturday and another early Sunday. Each day a new clue will be released until the medallion is found.
Dee Heili of Salina was searching in Jerry Ivey Park Sunday morning. She told KSAL News that she had been to several parks, along with a couple of other locations as well.
The hand-crafted art medallion is hidden on public property somewhere in Salina. Clues will be released each morning, 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.
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 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 14
Assorted Festival T-shirts, entertainer’s CDs, and other Festival memorabilia
