Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest's $3000 Hidden Treasure Discovered in Waterloo Park


For 19 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 Waterloo Park by Raylee Bonnell of Kitchener.

Raylee, 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, Newtex, Uptown Waterloo BIA, and Hans Haus. 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 Hans Haus 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 43rd year.
