The winner of the medallion hunt will win the honor of lighting the community tree and town on November 25th with Mayor Mouton at 6 PM.
Clue #1: The 1st annual Candy Cane Medallion is tucked away in one of Wayzata’s many public places to meet and stay awhile. Only to be found by one lucky child!
Clue #2: Huddled low beneath the arches, the medallion can be found. You might have to get a bit low to the ground!
Clue #3: Through a picturesque frame, the location can be seen. The medallion is hiding under one of 14!
Clubs #4: We hope your search so far has been fun, the medallion is straight across from a place built in 1941.
Update: The medallion has been found! Congrats to the lucky winners!
