The rules of the game are simple and flexible for anyone to take part. Anyone can be a rock painter and anyone can be a rock hunter. Some people hunt for rocks and place them in a new location. Many people will take a rock and replace wit with one that they have painted. Either way, hunters are encouraged to take a picture of their find and post on the #DeLandRocks Facebook group with a brief comment.
DeLand is not the first city to have a rocks program. Other cities in Florida such as Lakeland and St. Augustine have seen similar success in their area. Like these other cities, the goal is to “make somebody smile,” as is displayed on the description of the group’s Facebook page. In that case, it has been a total success!
