King Ludwig's $3,000 Treasure Found


For days Kitchener-Waterloo treasure hunters have been scouring the area for a hidden key worth $3,000! The key unlocks King Ludwig’s Treasure Chest and the annual search for the loot is one of the highlights of Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest.

Festival organizers have announced today that the key to the valuable treasure chest was found in Kitchener at McLennan Park by Nancy Kennedy of Kitchener.

Nancy Kennedy, and hundreds of other treasure hunters, followed a trail of clues given each weekday by KIX 106.7 FM and The Waterloo Region Record. Previously released clues were on display at M&M Meat Shops, The Waterloo Region Record, KIX 106.7 FM, UpTown Waterloo BIA, and the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest Official Retail Store.

Eager hunters who visited these locations also got to fill out a ballot to win daily draws for $100 Manulife Bank Bucks, redeemable in merchandise from Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest Official Retail Store located on 17 Benton Street, in Kitchener.

Over 50 charitable organizations, community services and cultural programs in Waterloo Region are invigorated by proceeds generated through Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, now in its 44th year.
