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!
