Geocache Description:

Welcome to the C-Mass Geofest Smiley caches. There is a total of 25 caches. The first 10 are Park and Grabs while the last 15 are on hiking trails in the area.

The iconic Smiley (sometime called a happy or smiling face) was first drawn right here in Central Massachusetts. You will need to gather knowledge about all things Smiley to find the final coordinates of the caches. All the caches are related to Smiley history or pop culture.
