Find Folepi Ornament Hunt

 

This is what you are hunting for: the 2015 ornament in the Find Folepi hunt! It is a 3-inch round clear acrylic ornament with the Festival of Lights logo on it.

 

THE ORNAMENT HAS BEEN FOUND!!

Amy and Jason Gerlach of Washington are back-to-back winners of the Find Folepi Ornament Hunt, finding it in both 2014 and 2015. The ornament was hidden outside the Fondulac District Library in a corner behind a bush close to the Books Flying Off the Shelves sculpture. The Gerlachs found it just moments before the sixth clue was released.

“My husband, the kids and I have been searching for weeks,” said Amy Gerlach, whose family also found the ornament in the 2014 hunt. “We have been looking inside and outside the library for weeks. We looked yesterday (Dec. 29) for four hours.”

Gerlach said the family initially searched at the library, but then moved their efforts to a plaza outside of an attorney’s office at the intersection of East Washington and Anna streets, and also searched around the Fon du Lac Park District Administration Building on Veterans Drive.

“We went back to the library really early this morning and saw (the ornament) in a bag in the mulch under the bush,” Gerlach said.

For their hunting efforts, the Gerlachs will receive both the ornament and a prize package worth more than $1,000 donated by area businesses.

 

CLUE 6 - DEC. 30, 2015

Rain, rain, go away.
The ornament needs to be found.
Be sure to use caution if
the snow hits the ground.

You need to keep chasing the weasel
around the bare bush.
Don't stop to read,
just dig a little deeper and 
be polite, don't push!

You will be sure to see,
the hidden ornament of
FOLEPI.

CLUE 5 - DEC. 23, 2015

This is the 5th
This is the last.
Better keep looking
but make it fast.

If you look quick
you will see,
the weasel being chased
by the monkey.

If you're worn out
and need to sit,
find Jack's spot
and rest a bit.

If you need a snack
Jack will share.
It's Christmas pie that
you will have there.
But don't be put off
Because it is bare.

 

CLUE 4 - DEC. 16, 2015

The money has been counted,
the money is no more.
But catch a gander at
the titles you will find,
there will be plenty
and many different kind.
The generosity of one has made it so,
the flight of knowledge can help you grow.

 

CLUE 3 - DEC. 9, 2015

Many characters you may meet,
Especially if you stop to eat.
If you need to rest a bit,
Make it firm while you sit.
If you listen to the stories,
You may pick out a clue.
Read between the lines
There is nothing else to do.

 

CLUE 2 - DEC. 2, 2015

A dillar, a dollar, it may take a scholar.
But be nimble and quick.
For if the clock strikes 4:00,
it's time for broth and bread.
So to the market you shall go.
But a rich man you no longer will be,
a poor man is what we now see.
If you have any wool,
you are sure to stay warm.
Let's keep looking
before the snow storm.

 

CLUE 1 - NOV, 25, 2015

It's that time again for a run through the town,
But not in your nightgown.
The ornament is hid, maybe up, maybe down,
Just don't fall looking and break your crown.
But don't tarry too long, be on your way.
The train whistle is blowing,
You're limited on days.

 

Area residents will have a chance to win more than $1,000 in prizes if they can Find Folepi.

The Find Folepi ornament hunt, now in its fourth year, will begin Nov. 25 with the release of the first clue. A 3-inch round clear acrylic Folepi ornament will be hidden somewhere on public property within the East Peoria city limits. The hiding place could be indoors or outside and in a non-dangerous location. Clues will be issued weekly beginning Nov. 25 until the Folepi ornament is found.

Clues will be posted on Wednesdays in the East Peoria Times-Courier, on www.folepi.org, on www.facebook.com/EPFestivalofLights, and on a large Folepi cutout located outdoors at the Festival Building, 2200 E. Washington St.

The ornament hunt is open to residents throughout Central Illinois. Those participating in the hunt are encouraged to be respectful of property and to park in safe locations that do not block traffic.
