Ready to chase some magic on the beach? Lincoln City, Oregon is buzzing with anticipation for an unforgettable Labor Day weekend! Dive into the exhilarating Glass Float Extravaganza from Saturday, September 2, to Monday, September 4.

Prepare for an exceptional treasure hunt, as Lincoln City amplifies its beloved Finders Keepers tradition. This time, 40 additional vibrant glass floats will be strategically placed for adventurers to discover!

Can you guess the theme? College spirit is in the air! Half of the floats, sporting green and yellow, salute the University of Oregon, while the other 20, donned in orange and black, cheer for Oregon State University. A hearty shoutout to Studio West in Eugene, OR, the masterminds behind these exquisite handcrafted marvels.

Stay alert! Floats are dispersed at varying times throughout the day. Keep a keen eye anywhere on dry land—from the dunes, beneath cliffs, to the vicinity of logs and rocks. But remember, all floats are positioned above the tide line and just shy of embankments.

Rain or shine, Lincoln City is committed to the fun. Yet, safety is paramount. On days with challenging ocean conditions or unpleasant weather, float drops might pause. For any updates or cancellations, stay tuned to their official social media platforms and website.
