Village by the Sea kicks off new year with seaside sea-float hunt

Langley Main Street Association and Callahan’s Firehouse in Langley are starting the New Year with a public treasure hunt.

The Sea Float Scramble will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 4, at Seawall Park off First Street.

Glass artist Callahan McVay has created one-of-a-kind glass sea floats that will be hidden near the city’s waterfront. People are invited to scramble for one once the ribbon is dropped. Participants may go home with their own glass treasure.

All sea floats will be hidden in plain sight, no digging necessary. Glass floats will be visible in front of Callahan’s Firehouse.

Enter the contest to guess the correct number of floats on display and win half the entry fee money collected. Each entry costs $1, so guess often. Half of the entry fees will be donated to the South Whidbey High School art program. Second prize will be a $100 gift certificate to Callahan’s Firehouse, while third prize is a free entrée at The Braeburn.

The winners will be announced at the Sea Float Scramble.
