37th Annual Medallion Hunt

Somewhere in the city limits of Valley Center and on public property, a special medallion has been hidden!

Find this medallion!

Find the wood medallion and bring it to Ark Valley News, 210 West Main Street, to claim your prize.

The medallion is hidden on public land and under no circumstances will its discovery require the use of a shovel, saw or hammer. Searchers are asked to refrain from intruding on private property and to respect our parks and playgrounds, avoid any damage to trees, shrubbery, buildings and any other public facilities. Under no circumstances will the medallion be hidden behind loved fences or gates.

Fall Festival Brackets are $4 each. If you purchased a bracelet by September 20 and your hunting license is filled out and returned to a sponsor and you are the one who finds the medallion, your $250 cash prize immediately becomes a $500 cash prize! Licenses are available at sponsor locations, or you many clip the one in the link below.
