Medallion Quest Begins Friday Afternoon

The 2014 Smoky Hill River Festival Medallion Quest begins on Friday afternoon, with the first clue being announced live in Oakdale Park, and on the radio.

A hand-crafted art medallion will be 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.

The first clue will be announced live Friday afternoon, at around 1:00, during an Art A La Carte concert in Oakdale Park on the Eric Stein Stage. Salina Media Group 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.

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)
