The city of Lafayette is jumping on the craze of hiding painted rocks around the community.

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The city of Lafayette is jumping on the craze of hiding painted rocks around the community.

Members of the Mayor's Youth Council decorated 20 rocks representing some of the city's different departments.

Then they were hidden around the city.

People are urged to take a selfie with them and post them to the Facebook group "Tippecanoe County Rocks" with #LafayetteIN.

After that, they're asked to re-hide them so the fun can continue.

"Government is people. It's not just a great big entity, a faceless organization," said Marketing and Communications Director Patty Payne. "But there are people behind everything in government and we like to have fun too."

Payne said the possibility of adding more rocks is not out of the question.
