All the treasures are on a property accessible to the public.

Then you will need to bring it to the Groves Room office at 4399 Main Ave. Monday to Thursday, or at the Chamber of Commerce booth on the festival grounds from Friday to Sunday to receive your prize.
Every effort will be made to notify treasure hunters as soon as possible via Facebook that a treasure has been found.
