The Treasure is Found After Two Clues

Co-workers Denise Keller and Nicole Bruce teamed up and found the Flurry Fest Treasure today, Tuesday, February 9, in Kiwanis Park. The duo found the treasure while on their lunch hour from Southridge Chiropractic Clinic.

Denise and her family have been long-time, serious Flurry Fest Treasure Hunt seekers. Over the years, they have collected a trove of treasure hunting reference material, including photos and notes from all of Bismarck’s parks. But it was newcomer Nicole who was the lucky charm and helped seek out the treasure on her first time hunting.

Denise and Nicole took a quick trip to Sertoma Park before finding their way to Kiwanis Park. The treasure was hidden near the park’s restroom. The successful treasure finders have won prizes from Bismarck Parks and Recreation District, including golf, swimming, and fitness passes. Congratulations, Denise and Nicole!

Flurry Fest events continue all month long
