Oktoberfest Medallion Hunt is on

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – It’s time once again for the annual Oktoberfest Medallion Hunt.

Each day at 6 a.m., fest officials release a new clue that leads searchers to the medallion. As in the past, the medallion:

Clue #1

For nearly six decades we’ve sent you north, south east and west,

From the very beginning you’ve learned to Fest with das Beste;

Parks, libraries, trees, bushes and plants,

They’ve held that small medallion amid the cheers and rants.

On the back of the medallion is a name and phone number to call to report it has been found.

Whoever finds the medallion wins gift certificates, Oktoberfest merchandise, a cash prize, and a miniature replica of the medallion.

To claim the prizes, the finder must have a 2019 Oktoberfest Admission pass and/or be wearing a 2019 Oktoberfest USA button at the time they present the medallion at the Oktoberfest office.

We’ll have the new clue each day on News 19 Daybreak every morning just after 6 a.m. until the medallion is found.
