(Lincoln City, Oregon) – There are still four more days left of glass float inundation and hunting in Lincoln City, as the central Oregon coast town celebrates spring break with its largest Special Glass Drop of the entire Finders Keepers season. Volunteers, affectionately known as Float Fairies, are dropping 300 extra glass art pieces on the beach in Lincoln City, from now until March 27.

From the high tide line to the embankment, visitors can search the beach in Lincoln City for their very own glass keepsake. 300 extra glass art pieces including floats, crabs, and sand dollars are now out the town's seven miles of beach waiting to be discovered.

This Spring Break Special Glass Drop is part of Finders Keepers, glass floats on the beach in Lincoln City. It is now the 16th year of the promotion, which started in mid-October and will continue until Memorial Day. 2,016 officially numbered glass floats are hidden daily, rain or shine, on the beach for lucky treasure hunters to find. If you find one, you get to keep it.

Once a float is found, it becomes a collector's item. Local tourism officials say to bring it to the Visitor Center at 540 NE Hwy 101 in Lincoln City to receive your certificate of authenticity and a biographical sketch of the artist who created the glass float.

“If you find a float, take a photo and share it with us on social media. You can share it on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LincolnCityOregon or on Twitter @LincolnCityOR,” said Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau spokesman Eric Johnson.
