2023 Freedom Festival medallion found
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The hidden medallion from the 2023 Freedom Festival has been located.
The 4-inch acrylic disc with the festival’s 2023 logo was hidden in the Cedar Rapids metro area as part of an annual scavenger hunt. Clues were given daily until someone found the medallion. The clues were listed as follows:
Welcome to the Medallion Hunt for 2023!
Another adventure awaits you and me
Let’s begin without any haste
Know there isn’t a second to waste
Please know the prize is hidden away
At a public place where many love to play
Safe and sound and out of sight
There waiting for you day and night
Look high and low for this prize
Overlooked is its disguise
Go outside and enjoy the chase
Slow down a bit and enjoy the pace
The location you seek is known for
Hiking, picnics, and so much more
Each line you read is leading you
Nearer towards a hidden clue
The next clue I’m sure you’ll love
Unless you fault what I am thinking of
Rest assured if this clue has got you hot
Nearby is a pool to hit the spot
On Friday, Nancy Gregerson found the medallion at the small playground near the tennis courts at Bever Park. She is the winner of the $500 Hy-Vee gift card and announced that she is donating it to Riverview Center.
The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival made the following announcement in response to her generosity:
“We think Nancy is pretty great and we are excited to promote and support another nonprofit! Thank you for playing this year, we look forward to the hunt again next year!”
