Did you miss out on previous glass float drops in Lincoln City Oregon? Finders Keepers is dropping more beautiful glass floats in Lincoln City over Memorial Day weekend, so you’ll get a chance to head to the beach and find one of your very own.
This is your chance to try your luck at finding one of the many gorgeous hand-blown glass floats on Lincoln City’s seven miles of coastal beaches. From Road’s End in the north to Taft in the south, hidden treasure awaits. The catch? There is none! You find it, you keep it. The holiday falls on May 28th and goes through the 30th this year the following Monday.
Finders Keepers Drops Floats For Memorial Day
Since 1997, mysterious local folks have been hiding these glass floats on the Lincoln City sands, a throwback to when locals would find vintage Japanese floats washed up from their journey across the Pacific Ocean. These days, local artisans provide the treasure which is no less special.
Each unique glass float is numbered and signed so finders can register their discoveries online. If you’re lucky enough to find one, bring your float to the Visitors’ Center to the 4th floor at 801 SW Hwy 101 in Lincoln City to receive an autograph from the float-blower, a certificate of authenticity, and a bio from the artisan.
According to Explore Lincoln City, drops will continue throughout the year with special hides on different dates. Upcoming events include:
-May 28-30, 2022: Memorial Day: 50 Red/white/blue floats
