The Downtown Management District (DMD) is paving the way to Valentine’s Day with the second annual Hidden Hearts contest, giving the public the opportunity to win Valentine’s inspired prizes, sponsored by downtown businesses. “The contest was so well received by the public last year that we decided to bring it back. This time we have more prizes and new clues,” said Joe Gudenrath, DMD Executive Director.
Papel picado hearts will be hidden in businesses throughout downtown in each of the five (5) districts each week, leading up to Valentine’s Day. Multiple prizes will be given away each week for each hidden heart and every participant is automatically entered for a chance to win the grand prize. The grand prize “Dream Date Package” includes a pedicab ride from Pedicabs El Paso, dinner for two (2) at Tabla, and two (2) tickets for a concert hosted by El Paso Pro-Musica!
To play just follow these steps:
Step 1 – Use the clues posted on DWNTWN El Paso social media (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook) and the SPOTLIGHT section of DowntownElPaso.com to find the Hidden Hearts.
Step 2 – Take a photograph with the heart!
Step 3 – Post and tag DWNTWN El Paso on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter! Alternatively you can use the hashtag #DTEP or #HiddenHearts (make sure the post is set to public) or message us the photo.
No purchase is necessary in the business the heart is hidden at in order to participate. All participants are automatically entered for a chance to win the “Dream Date Package” grand prize announced on February 9, 2016.
