PEORIA, Ill. -- Green Team volunteers weren't the only ones cleaning the riverfront grounds Saturday morning.

Eric Clark calls himself a treasure hunter for the third year in a row he came out to the riverfront to look for knick-knacks and spare change that might have been left behind by the thousands of visitors last night.

"It's not hard work actually but it's kind of tedious and lonely, but you can find something out there," said treasure hunter Eric Clark.

So far he says he's never found much more than a couple of quarters but he'll keep looking until he hits the jackpot.
