This Event Happens in: 
January and February

Every year, Jekyll Island commissions a group of highly skilled artisans from across the U.S. to create an array of stunning, handworked glass globes. During this two-month-long program, "Beach Buddies"  are responsible for hiding these floats in various locations across the island for lucky visitors to find. The best part? This treasure hunt is 100% finders, keepers! 

Spend a day exploring Jekyll Island in January or February to find these beautiful glass orbs to take a token of the Golden Isles home with you. Want a sneak peak for where to look? Here's a map of where to find them!
