Polk County, Florida – Move over Pokemon “Rocks” are way cooler! All over Polk County people are painting rocks and hiding them everywhere. Locally it appears to be traced back to a family in Lakeland, but they got the idea from finding a rock in Vancouver, Washington. According to the Fox 13 article the family started to paint rocks and hide them all over Lakeland. Well now they are popping up all over Polk County. And social media is playing a huge part of it. There are groups all over facebook now, “Lakeland Rocks”, Lake Wales “Rocks”, Bartow “Rocks“, Eagle Lake “Rocks” and now a Polk “Rocks”.
Thousands have joined these groups and we guess thousands of rocks are now being painted and placed all over the county. It serves multiple purposes too! It gets individuals or families to be creative, it gets people out doors to hide the rocks or search to find the rocks and it usually brings a smile to someone’s face when they find a rock and read some of the messages on them.
Why don’t you go out and start “Rocking”!
