Flurry Fest Treasure Found

It took Savannah Calavera four clues to find the 2022 Flurry Fest Treasure at Zonta Park late Thursday morning.

Calavera and a group of her coworkers have been participating in the Treasure Hunt for the past few years, and this is the first time she has found the treasure. In fact, there’s a little friendly competition in her office with two departments trying to outdo each other in finding the treasure.

Based on the first couple of clues this week, Calavera searched Lions Park. “I hiked the frisbee golf hill and looked in every tree,” said Calavera. “And I got in a lot of exercise.” Yesterday’s clue led her to Zonta Park, but she didn’t find the treasure until this morning.

Flurry Fest is Bismarck Parks and Recreation District’s month-long celebration of winter. The Treasure Hunt is a popular Flurry Fest activity with clues to the location of the treasure announced every day for five days. The first clue appeared on the Bismarck Park and Recreation District’s website and Facebook page Monday morning.

Calavera has won a variety of golf, fitness and pool passes as her Flurry Fest Treasure Hunt reward.

Flurry Fest events continue through the end of the month. 

Thursday, Feb. 10 – Clue #4

So many benefits from our crawling helpers
One is silk, another venom
Across the way from where I lay
I see a place to climb and have fun.

Wednesday, FEB. 9 – CLUE #3

I’m hiding in a place to play
Alongside this former gravel roadI
It was a primary route
That was built to haul a load.

Tuesday, Feb. 8 – Clue #2

A hike to the peak
Or a dive to the depth
Find me near a place to rest
And hope that you can catch your breath.

Monday, Feb. 7 – Clue #1

Already there’s more snow
Than our last mild winter
So brave the weather
To find the Flurry Fest treasure.
