2023 Crosslake Days Search for the Lost Chili Pepper
Thursday, September 28, 2023 9:00 AM - Saturday, September 30, 2023 8:00 PM (CDT)
THE LOST CHILI PEPPER HAS BEEN FOUND!
Congratulations Mike & Alex Stone and Sam who located the pepper hanging in a little pine tree at the north end of the property along Swann Drive where the National Loon Center will be located!
It's Crosslake Days! Round up the family and get outside to search for the Crosslake Days Lost Chili Pepper! Somewhere within the City limits of Crosslake lays, hangs, dangles, or sits the lost pepper! One of three clues will be released daily beginning Thurs. Sept. 28th at 9 a.m. to guide you to its location.
The pepper will NEVER be located on private residential property, and NO DESTRUCTION or DISASSEMBLY of ANYTHING is necessary to find it. Please heed and be respectful of this statement.
Find it, present it at Lake Country Crafts & Cones (36084 CR 66) and cash in on a prize basket courtesy of Crosslake Chamber member businesses valued at more than $3,200 courtesy of Crosslake area businesses!
Crosslake is an awesome place to live, work and play,

What am I? Who am I? Where am I?
I am the Crosslake Days chili pepper, hidden but not shy.
The prize package that awaits you would be very expensive to buy!
I am waiting for you to find me, no higher than your thigh.
I’m excited for the changes from my little pine view,
including the National Loon Center, soon to make its debut.
Explore Crosslake to find me and you will see,
successful businesses and generous hospitality.
Find the clues here, at Crosslake businesses, www.crosslake.com and on the Crosslake App.
