Sun Festival Medallion

Katie and Carrie Waldrop found the Sun Festival Medallion last year. Who will be the winners of the $200 checks awarded to those who find the medallion this week?

The Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Medallion Hunt is on the schedule for Sun Festival this week. 

The annual medallion hunt begins at 6 a.m. Monday morning. A clue will be given on the Alexander City Chamber of Commerce’s social media pages, The Outlook Facebook page and on “The Front Porch” on Kowaliga Country 97.5, according to director of marketing and special events Kim Dunn.

If the medallion is found, the winner will call Kowaliga Country 97.5 at 256-234-6221 and take the medallion to The Alexander City Outlook office to redeem a $200 check and have their picture taken. Dunn said if the medallion is not found by 3 p.m. a second clue will be given out. 

The medallion hunt continues Monday through Saturday with new clues each day. Dunn said the hunt has been popular since it started.

“It’s always been something everybody loves,” Dunn said. “People get out and are searching all over town and are commenting and posting all over Facebook.”

Medallions have been found within an hour, into the night and even next day, according to Dunn. 

The Alexander City Outlook office is located at 548 Cherokee Rd.
