The Float Fairies in Lincoln City, Oregon are hiding an extra 100 glass floats on the beach for Memorial Day weekend, plus a jumbo float with a getaway prize package attached.

Memorial Day is the unofficial kick-off to the summer season. But as one season begins, another must come to a close. The holiday marks the end of the Finders Keepers season and glass floats on the beach in Lincoln City. To celebrate the close of the 18th season of Finders Keepers, Lincoln City's mysterious Float Fairies will hide an extra 100 glass floats on the beach for Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29, 2017.

Throughout the season volunteers lovingly known as Float Fairies, hide hand-made glass art pieces along Lincoln City's seven miles of soft, sandy beach. Hidden between the high tide line and the embankment, 2017 numbered glass floats have been sought by eager treasure hunters. You find keep it.

There is still time to find a float before the season closes. On Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29, an additional 100 glass floats will be hidden on the beach. Included with this special glass drop is a jumbo sized float with a weekend getaway prize package attached to celebrate the closing of the season. The prize package includes lodging, restaurant and activity certificates. Each registered float comes with a certificate of authenticity along with a biography on the artist who made the float.

The fun continues for lucky treasure hunters. Register your float with the Lincoln City Visitor Information Center and share it with others on Lincoln City's social media channels. Finders Keepers will return again on October 14th, 2017.
