The community wide treasure-hunt begins on Friday, May 25, 2018, when a hand-crafted art medallion will be hidden on public property somewhere in Salina. Clues will be released to the Festival Quest Clues news feed on the Festival Quest page of the River Festival website daily until the medallion is found. Clues will also be posted on the west entry doors of the Arts and Humanities office located at 211 W. Iron Ave.

  • The Smoky Hill River Festival website: riverfestival.com
