It happensThanksgiving weekend, November 27 - 28, 2015, and you may find a brightly colored glass art piece. (Where to stay during this - Where to eat - Virtual Tour, Map)

Over 100 of the treasured fineds will be hidden along the beach in Lincoln City just waiting to be found. Dedicated volunteers called Float Fairies will drop glass floats, starfish, crabs, shells, and sand dollars on both days.

This special holiday glass art drop is part of Lincoln City's annual Finders Keepers promotion, which celebrates its 16th anniversary and continues through Memorial Day, May 30, 2016 with glass floats put out daily. The signed, numbered, and handcrafted floats are hidden along the seven miles of public beach in Lincoln City. When the floats are found, they become collector’s items. Bring your discovered treasure to the Visitors’ Center at 540 NE Hwy 101 in Lincoln City to receive your autographed certificate of authenticity and a biography of the artist who created the glass float. Remember, if you find it, you keep it!

In-between hunting for beach treasure, the Lincoln City Outlets invite you to shop for treasures this holiday season. With over 50 brand-name stores, the Lincoln City Outlets are your one-stop shopping destination on the central Oregon coast.
