550 Glass Floats are hidden annually on Block Island starting in June and ending when all floats have been found. All floats are dated, numbered and stamped with the shape of the island. All floats are made by famed glass designer, Eben Horton. They are hidden on the beaches and the Greenway Trails and never on dunes or bluffs. If you find one you get to keep it, but finders should register that they found that particular float. It is rumored that even one float is made entirely of gold leaf.
