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 double meaning, veiled references, and carefully disguised hints all designed to bring out the "Da Vinci Code" enthusiast in all of us. Families, friends, co-workers and even neighborhoods collaborate in an attempt to find the Medallion. Besides the obvious fame, the finder also wins a trip for two (Caribbean Cruise or Las Vegas) courtesy of Pepsi and arranged through World Wide Travel.

The 2014 Pepsi Marigold Medallion Hunt start date is to be announced soon.
