Finders Keepers

EVERY year in Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast, USA from mid-October through Memorial Day May 29 up to 3,000 handcrafted glass floats made by local artisans are 'dropped' on the seven miles of beach which stretches from Roads End to Siletz Bay - for tourists to find and keep. Special numbered floats are included in the 'drop' the amount relative to the year so this year 2,016 numbered floats can also be found.

The Finders Keepers project began in 1997, when a local artist first thought of glass floats as an intriguing way to launch the new millennium. Lincoln City sponsored the project, hosting the inaugural season in 1999-2000. Tourists came from around the country to search for their own brilliantly-colored, signed and numbered glass float.

The Basic rules of the hunt are simple:
  • Floats can be found above the high tide line and below the beach embankment
  • Floats are placed on the beach during daylight hours only.
  • Floats are hidden throughout the day, not just at one time.
  • Floats are out there every day rain or shine. (On rare occasions weather and ocean conditions can create unsafe situations, official notice of any cancellations will be made on our social media channels and website.)
