LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The annual Oktoberfest Medallion Hunt continues this morning with the third 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:
- Is always located within the La Crosse city limits
- Is never buried in the ground
- Is always on public property
- Is accessible 24 hours, but posted hours should be observed
- Fits in the palm of a hand
- May be camouflaged
Bohemians, Poles, Germans and others from Europe,
All found opportunities in the new country with lots of hope;
A former Festmaster was the first customer at the neighborhood grocery store,
Nearly seven decades later helped the franchise close the door.
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.
