Every morning this week through Friday, there will be a clue released via radio, the Internet and at City Hall regarding the location of a medallion. The finder of that medallion wins $50, and on Saturday there will be a $100 drawing among the five winners from earlier in the week.
Listen for the clues on WRGS radio in Rogersville at 6:30 a.m., 9:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Clues can also be obtained at City Hall or on the Web site www.surgoinsvilleriverfrontfestival.com.
The Medallion Hunt contest is sponsored by Contour Industries.
The first clue is, “Stop and sit a while.”
This year’s festival begins Friday at 10 a.m. with many of the regular attractions including children’s rides, games, food, live music, a car show, block party, fishing tournament, arts and crafts and fireworks.
The theme for this year’s festival is appreciation to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency for providing the town with a 25-year lease for the Riverfront Park where the festival takes place.
On Friday at 3 p.m. there will be a ceremony held at the park including several local, state and TWRA dignitaries making the lease official. The festival will also include a TWRA Expo, which will feature numerous demonstrations, displays and educational programs associated with the TWRA. For more details, see the festival Web site or call City Hall at 345-2213.
