A major treasure hunt is underway in La Crosse.
The 20-16 Oktoberfest medallion hunt kicked off this
with the reveal of the first clue.
A lot of careful planning goes into this secretive
The people who hide the medallion and write the clues
deliver the clues anonymously to the Oktoberfest Operations
who then releases them to the public.
If you've ever gone medallion hunting you know.
sometimes those clues are hard to decipher.
But the challenge is all part of the fun.
It really is something the community gets behind.
People really enjoy doing it together.
I've had several people already call and ask for the
clues, even try to bribe me and ask where it was.
I do not accept bribes.
It's the fun leading up to fest, and we really enjoy
it being a part of what we do.
A new clue is released every morning after 6 a-m on
News 8 This Morning .
so be sure to tune in.
