Pepsi Marigold Medallion Hunt

Get Ready to Solve the Clues!

Every year at the end of August, Pekin’s
amateur detectives and determined sleuths
prepare for the Pepsi Marigold Medallion
Hunt. They pit their interpretive skills with
the Medallion Hunt Cluemeister who has carefully hidden the small disc somewhere on public property and then releases “clues” on a daily basis. The clues carry doublemeaning, veiled references, and carefully disguised hints all designed to bring out the “DaVinci Code” enthusiast in all of us. Families, friends, co-workers and even neighborhoods collaborate in an attempt to discover the Medallion’s hidden location. The finder will discover that a very nice prize - often a
nice trip for two awaits them courtesy of our generous friends at Pepsi. But, as history has
shown, it is the excitement of being the one person who “has figured it all out” that often
represents the greatest prize of all.

The 2014 Pepsi Marigold Medallion Hunt start date will be Monday, August 25th.
