LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The annual Oktoberfest Medallion Hunt continues this morning with the fifth clue.
Each day at 6 a.m., fest officials release a new clue that leads searchers to the medallion. As in the past, the medallion:
Chosen by city founding fathers as an eternal resting spot,
A prominent city attorney and civic leader beautified the grassy lot;
The massive stone arch honored him and made the site a landmark,
A century later still carries the leader’s vision resembling a park.
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.
