New this year is “12 Small Business Days Before Light Up the Boulevard”. National Small Business Saturday is only a day, but here on Grand Island we want to highlight our local small business throughout the month of November. Light Up the Boulevard kicks off the traditional holiday shopping season with local businesses; this is where you get involved and all the fun begins!
We will be running TWO contests between November 8-19th – one is a selfie contest, and the other is a punch card contest for a grand prize. All you have to do is stop at each business location on its designated day and hours take a selfie at each stop with our poster, upload that selfie to the Light Up the Boulevard Facebook page (we want to see some fun photos). Make sure you “LIKE” each business; throughout the 12 days we will randomly be picking WINNERS. To enter in our grand prize, you have to fill up your punch card; at each stop make sure you get your punch card punched. You can pick up a punch card at the Chamber office or any of the participating locations.
