Clue No. 1:
Strawberry Fest comes but once a year
Parade, music, rides and cheer
But don’t forget the big news today
It’s time for a medallion hunt, we do say
Clue No. 2
It’s only Day 2 but medallion searchers are out
Everyone should find out what this fun is about
To find the big prize keep this in mind:
Leaving public property will put you behind
Clue No. 3:
Enthusiasm is building as the fest is near
But the medallion’s location sure isn’t clear
This hunt highlights the city’s great public lands
From Kingston head west and south, far from the festival’s bands
Clue No. 4
Unless under a rock, you know the fest starts today
Partake in the fun, but don’t give up a search underway
To a marker west of 61 you should head
Toward a place too few seem to tread
