The Lakefront Days Medallion is made of marble with a City Logo centered on its face (photo below). It is placed in a cardboard box and completely wrapped in duct tape, for protection. The duct tape wrap may be of any color or design including camouflage.
The first Medallion Hunt took place in 2002, one year after Lakefront Park (5000 Kop Pkwy. SE) was developed as a city park.
