The rules are straightforward: register online at You'll receive specific coordinates on a GPS device or smartphone (there's an app for that) that plot the secret location. And then after some digging -- voilà! -- you could stumble on the "geocache," a container holding the medallion.

The festival runs from Sept. 5 through Sept. 7. For details, visit
