Search for blown glass floats in this 20-year Oregon Coast tradition.


By Sophia June

Ever wanted to be a pirate/Goonie, but without the death traps and/or toothlessness?

Well, there’s going to be a treasure hunt. On the beach. In Lincoln City.

Starting on October 15, Lincoln City “Float Fairies” will place 3,000 handcrafted blown glass floats from local artists on the beach, from Roads End on the north to Siletz Bay on the south. If you find one, it’s yours.

This year will mark the 20th anniversary of Finders Keepers, put on by the local government of Lincoln City, presumably to lure in tourists during the cold and rainy months. Consider it PirateLite™—no pillaging, plundering, scurvy or lawlessness, but plenty of booty.
The floats will be hidden throughout the winter, with this year’s hunt ending next May, on Memorial Day.
