The recently renamed Explore Lincoln City (formerly Lincoln City Visitors Bureau) has just announced its Finders Keepers poster is now available. It celebrates 20 years of treasured hunting, and this may be the final season: meaning the season will never end.

Depicting a colorful deep-sea background, the poster invokes the new Lincoln City branding, complete with octopus tentacles holding a glass float. The poster was developed by Explore Lincoln City’s marketing agency of record, BPN (Borders Perrin Norrander).

Explore Lincoln City Marketing Manager, Scott Humpert, is a bit like a proud papa of the poster.

“We are extremely proud of this year’s Finders Keepers poster,” said Humpert. “It represents a wonderful collaboration between staff at Explore Lincoln City and our creative agency Border Perrin Norrander. This year marked an opportunity to celebrate the 20th program year of Finders Keepers while integrating the City’s new branding. The result is vibrant, whimsical and playful art that will be leveraged through a variety of promotions and media. The poster’s development is always an involved process, but the tradition is well worth the investment. We will continue to set a high standard for the Finders Keepers program as a signature Lincoln City experience.”

The 20th season of Finders Keepers begins on October 13, bringing once again hordes of visitors in search of the coveted glass art pieces. It’s something anyone of any age can dive into, scouring Lincoln City’s seven pristine miles of sand for a brightly-colored glass float. Each is carefully hidden by the Float Fairies, who ring in this latest season with a big surprise announcement: they are hiding the floats year-round.

That’s right, you can now hunt for floats 365 days a year. Even in spring and summer, you can now find the hidden Oregon coast treasures.

Copies of the Finders Keepers 20th season poster will be made available at both the Explore Lincoln City office, located at 801 SW Hwy 101 (fourth floor of City Hall), and the Visitor Information Center, located at 540 NE Hwy 101 inside the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Treasure hunters wanting a copy are encouraged to visit either location within Lincoln City. For guests out of town, please call Explore Lincoln City at 541-996-1274 or email at visitors@lincolncity.org to request a copy. Shipping and handling charges may apply.
