The Lowell Riddler: May 2024 Solution

The Lowell Riddler is back and hiding medallions in and near the City of Lowell for residents to find. Those who find the medallion will be rewarded with Lowell Bucks and bragging rights! Special thanks to the Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring the competition this year by providing the prizes this year.

Here’s the winner and solution to the May 2024 riddle:

Congratulations to Isaac and Cindy Smith of Lowell!

Where RP would like to sneak in.

Where kids like to go for a spin.
(Runciman School Playground)

When not okey-dokey,
You might find it hokey.
(When you’ve done wrong you could end up at the Police Dept.)

But Hollywood actors are thin.
(Next to L.A. Trim)

Clue #2
A basketball move flying high.
(Alley Oop)

Growing some food? He’s your guy.
(Behind Farm Bureau office)

Don’t walk in the park
So late after dark.

Here’s what the winners had to say about their search:

“We checked a lot of different places this past week. A lot of parks. I finally looked at a driving map this afternoon and saw LA Trim for “Hollywood actors are thin” & knew immediately that’s where it had to be. Then everything else started making sense.”

“Don’t heat the plums that you buy was Canfield Plumbing and Heating. Don’t walk in the park- not in a park. Basketball move flying high was alley oop.”

“Isaac is my 7-year-old grandson, and we had a ball looking for this medallion. Can’t wait for the next one!”

We hope everyone enjoyed this round, and The Riddler will be back in June!
