Great Glass Quest

WHAT: Visitors search businesses and community sites for clue balls. If they find one, they can turn it in for a limited edition glass ball made by artists Mark and Marcus Ellinger. This is the event’s sixth year.

WHEN: Now through Feb. 22.

WHERE: Stanwood and Camano Island.

HOW IT WORKS: Pick up a guide book, or download it from the website. Use the guidebook to find the plastic clue balls that are hidden in local parks and businesses during the event. If you do find a clue ball, instructions inside explain how to pick up your prize. About 40 businesses and organizations are taking part.

ENTER DRAWING: If you do not find a clue ball, there is another way to win. If you complete the entry forms in the back of the guide book, you will be entered to win a glass quest ball to be given away in March. Be sure to have the business stamp the entry form while on your quest.

GET A GUIDEBOOK: Guidebooks are available at in Stanwood at A Guilded Gallery, the Snow Goose Bookstore and Windermere Real Estate, and on Camano Island at the Camano Chamber office, Coffee Roasters and the Windermere Real Estate offices.
