Gnoming Around Oldsmar
~~ Gnome Invasion is the latest Pop Up Art Project ~~

OLDSMAR, FL – (February 23, 2021) –
The City of Oldsmar is under a Gnome Invasion with the official launch of its next Pop Up Art Project entitled ‘Gnoming Around Oldsmar.’ Set to run through May, the newest program features twelve mischievous gnomes strategically placed around Oldsmar and in its beautiful parks for Oldsmar residents and visitors of all ages to seek and find.
To find the gnomes, participants must solve riddles found at  Once the ‘Sherlock Gnome’ hunters discover a treasured find, they can snap a selfie with the mystical creature and share their discovery on social media using the hashtag #OldsmarGnomes
Program brochures, including the riddles, are also available from City staff members during normal business hours at Oldsmar City Hall (100 State St. W.), Oldsmar Public Library (400 St. Petersburg Dr. E.), and the Cypress Forest Recreation Center (650 Pine Ave. N.).
This engagement is the third installment of Pop Up Art Projects in Oldsmar.  In the Spring of 2019, ‘Unveil the Trail’ was launched by the City for young residents to find hidden animal tracks along the Oldsmar Trail that unveiled when sprayed with water.  In the Winter of 2019, the ‘Ribbon Tree Project’ provided the City an opportunity to partner with local businesses that adopted a tree along State Street to decorate with various ribbons.
