Folks find leprechauns, scrumptious food and more at Sharing Meadows hunt

WNLP photos and information by Bob Wellinski  

The heat didn’t stop hundreds of people from sharing in the fun of the 24th annual Sharing Meadows Leprechaun Hunt on Aug. 5, 2018. During the hunt, folks scoured the 185-acre property in Rolling Prairie, searching for 33 hidden leprechauns, each worth a different dollar amount. The event is a fundraiser for Sharing Meadows, a community for other-abled adults founded by Father Dennis Blaney back in the early 1990s.

Also entertaining visitors were Irish food, a magic show, music, bouncy houses, fishing, and more.

A bouncy house is always an adventure.

All ages enjoy this adventure.

“Hellooo, Mr. Leprechaun?”

Hot job: grilling chicken for the visitors.

How about a little music?

Sometimes, when hunger and aroma take over, leprechauns take a back seat.

Chow down!

This is one event where you really need a walking stick.
