Special Portland Trail Blazers Themed Float Drop Happening Now in Lincoln City

Finders Keepers Glass Floats in Lincoln City

Explore Lincoln City, which is behind the Finders Keepers event, is a tourism organization that places around 3,000 floats on Lincoln City’s beautiful beaches annually. In 2018, they decided to make the event a yearly thing, with a full calendar of special drops in addition to the daily drops.

Aside from the global health threat in 2020, the popular treasure hunt has still gone on every year. Their “float fairies” drop them in visible locations between the high tide line and the beach embankment, and are meant to be found easily by any lucky soul who happens to stumble upon them.

To read more about the event, starting December 10 and going through the weekend until Sunday, Dec. 11, visit ExploreLincolnCity.com/Glass-Floats.

Floats are now hidden year-round, so visit anytime to find a treasure. Happy hunting!
