NEDERLAND — Day 3 of Nederland Heritage Festival’s Treasure Hunt brings more clues tied to the city’s past.
The NHF hunt features a $300 prize co-sponsored by Melancon’s Funeral Home and the festival. A knowledge of Nederland history could help hunters. The treasure is on public property and no digging, climbing or destruction is needed to find the certificate. Clues are set to run this week, or until the treasure is found. For festival information, visit www.nederlandhf.org or call the festival office at 724-2269.
The air is filled with peace and love.
Flowers are blooming and birds fly above.
The treasure’s last hiding spot must be found.
This settler’s place had tulips all around.
Head east on Main for a good night’s sleep.
Only you can judge if it was worth the heap.
Watch the gandy-dancers working hard all day.
With their back breaking labor just making their way.
Run to the west as you follow your nose.
Head over to the place that never will close.
Go over for some Joe for a nickel a cup.
The price is right if you’re down on your luck.
