Downtown Cedar Rapids Summer Passport Kicks Off, Invites New Faces to the District
Jul 19, 2019
Do you have your Downtown Cedar Rapids Summer Passport yet?
The new buy local initiative launched last month and there’s still time to pick up a Passport, complete it and enter to win amazing prize packages. But don’t wait! There is a limited number of Passports left! Pick one up at the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance (501 First St. SE), The Gazette (500 3rd Ave. SE) or at participating businesses. After a harsh winter that kept many businesses’ doors shut and potential customers inside, this initiative invites people to explore businesses and events in the heart of the city.
Once you fill your Passport with stamps from all 12 participating businesses and at least two participating community events, return it to either the Economic Alliance or The Gazette to be entered to win one of three prize packages. Prize packages include a $1,000 Cedar Rapids Staycation Package, $900 Country Music Fan Package, and an $800 Pamper Package. Passports must be submitted by September 23 at 4 p.m. View the list of participating business and community events here.
The Downtown Cedar Rapids Summer Passport is brought to you by the Downtown Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District, the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance and The Gazette.Downtown Cedar Rapids Summer Passport in the news:
