Riverfest Medallion Found Near Stadium
But nine clues have led Gabe Tudahl to this year's Riverfest Medallion, hidden at the flagpole outside Veterans Memorial Stadium. The medallion was found after the ninth clue, referring to 'red, white and blue' and 'not so golden arches.' Gabe wins a 200-dollar package of prizes, including Riverfest food vouchers and tickets to the Commodore Reception at the Radisson next Wednesday. This is only the second year that Riverfest has put on a medallion hunt.
