As more restrictions are lifted, locals and tourists are coming back to the Downtown core just in time to cool down for the summer. To celebrate, the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association (DSBIA) is planning a welcome event to greet locals back in Surrey’s Downtown core, and to encourage them to visit businesses in the area.
Following the success of the Santa Window Walk last winter, the summer event will again have an artist paint art adhering to a welcome theme on the windows of all participating businesses, animating and breathing life back into the area. Alongside the paintings, we will be holding three different giveaways on Instagram, which will be open by the end of July for three weeks, from July 23 to August 13. Please note that participants must be following the DSBIA account on Instagram @dtsurrey, and that this giveaway is not affiliated with Instagram.
Here are the following giveaways and rules:
1. Heart Scavenger Hunt: A scavenger hunt giveaway where customers have to look for the common icon (a heart) hidden in all of the paintings, counting the total number. Whoever gives us the right number through our direct messages will win a gift card. (1 winner per week)
2. Support Local: The first 20 people each week to directly message (via instagram or Twitter) their receipt from a business with their welcome message in their window will win a gift card. (20
winners a week).
3. Take a selfie!: Participants are encouraged to take a picture while being in front of the store’s painting and post it on their Instagram. They must tag us and use the hashtags #SummersIn-Surrey and #DTSurreyWelcome. Winners will be randomly selected through a randomized generator, winning a gift card. (5 winners a week).
Winners will be announced on:
Week One: July 30
Week Two: August 6
Week Three: August 13
Be sure to look around the Downtown core area for the wonderful paintings at the end of July, and also follow our social media on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for more details regarding the giveaway (which will be released soon). The Downtown core and a scavenger hunt awaits you!
