Local bank hides 500 piggy banks with $20 inside around Puget Sound

A treasure hunt promotion by Peoples Bank has people all over six counties looking for little green pigs.

From July 18 to August 1, nearly 500 little green piggy banks will be hidden within 1 mile of Peoples Bank branches across Snohomish, Island, Whatcom, Skagit, Chelan and King counties, all stuffed with $20 in cash.

According to Peoples Bank, the pigs tend to enjoy parks, views and scenic trails.

Clues to finding the lost piggies will be made on the bank’s Twitter page, like this clue for a pig in Ferndale, under what appears to be children’s playground equipment.

Peoples Bank says that anyone who finds a pig is welcome to keep the pig and the cash inside.

However, people who find a pig and submit a picture of themselves with the pig, are eligible to win the grand prize of $1,000.

People are welcome to find more than one pig, but only one person can win the grand prize.

More information can be found on the Peoples Bank website.
