Say Hello to Dashing Through Downtown

Author: Alexandra LaRocque, Downtown Vision Marketing and Events Assistant

It’s the Holiday season which means shopping, shopping and more shopping! We are proud to present to you — Dashing Through Downtown. What is Dashing Through Downtown you ask? This event is a scavenger hunt throughout Downtown Jacksonville to encourage shopping local, all while being rewarded with the chance to win some pretty cool prizes! 

With all of that being said, here is the breakdown of how you can participate… Starting on December 14th and lasting until December 18th, there will be posters in local Downtown businesses with QR codes printed on them. To scan these QR codes you must download the Eventzee app. Eventzee will keep track of your moves as you Dash Through Downtown — literally.

Your goal should be to scan at least 10 QR codes, the first 200 participants to do so will win a $20 #DTJax e-Gift Card. Everyone who scans at least 10 codes will automatically be entered into a drawing to win prizes.

These prizes include a gift basket from Wolf & Cub, two Jacksonville Symphony tickets and two Go Tuk’n Tour Passes! Hoping for more drawing entries? Participate in the photo challenges through the Eventzee app. The more QR code scans and selfies, the better! The prizes get bigger and better as you dash through all of Downtown. If you scan every participating business’s QR code and finish all of the photo challenges, you will be entered into the grand drawing. The grand prize includes a two night stay at the Southbank Hotel, two tickets for the St. Johns River Taxi‘s Sunset Cruise and a bb’s gift card that is worth $50 — woohoo!

Here are some selfies from those who participated during Small Business Saturday:

To really end the week with a bang, our Merry and Bright Movie Night will be on Thursday December 17th. We hope you were able to claim your very own Magic Square and can’t wait for a jolly night.
