Rainbow City is located in the southern portion of Etowah County.  It is convenient to major state highways and is near Interstate Highway 59.  We remain one of the fastest growing cities in the state, both in industry and residential growth.  With various forms of recreation, such as parks, recreation center, track, and boating, and convenience to major shopping centers, it is no wonder that more people are choosing to relocate in Rainbow City, Alabama.   For more call: (256) 442-2511

Clues for the Treasure Chest will begin Thursday, March 19th and will be available on this website and listen on WQSB/MIX102.9/Power 107.5!!  A clue will be released every Thursday morning! The treasure “certificate” will be hidden somewhere in Rainbow City and may or may not be available 24/7! 

You are asked to abide by these rules: 

  • (1) Participants are looking for a “certificate” not a treasure chest.  When the certificate is found the winner is asked to call The Chamber and let them know it has been found and bring the certificate to their office for verification.

  • (3) It will be hidden in the city limits of Rainbow City and we urge our participants to the courteous to each other and to the owner/managers of property that might contain the certificate.
