White Bear Lake Manitou Days Treasure Hunt

The White Bear Lake Manitou Days Treasure Hunt is held annually within White Bear Lake and its neighboring communities. It has been going on since 1990. A Cooler Crew find in this one will be a great feather in our collective cap, as it would break a nice dynasty that has found it for about a decade now.
