Fifth medallion hunt clue released for Holiday Hoopla

The Holiday Hoopla medallion hunt is underway in downtown Hastings. 

Here's the fifth clue:

The Holiday Hoopla is coming fast, a day full of memories that's sure to last. On the streets of downtown is the place to be, along the RiverWalk, the prize you will see.

The medallion hunt sends people throughout downtown Hastings in search of the Holiday Hoopla medallion. The finder will win $250 (half in cash and half in Downtown Bucks).

The medallion can be found on public property and does not require any digging or climbing. Whoever finds the medallion should bring it to Berens Jewelery.

Clues will be released at 9 a.m. daily on the Hastings Star Gazette website and will be broadcast on KDWA Radio, AM 1460/ FM 97.7.

The medallion hunt kicks off the annual Holiday Hoopla event, which is set for Saturday, Nov. 26 in downtown Hastings.
