As a part of the City of Owensboro’s 12 Days of Christmas events, Visit Owensboro is launching Santa’s List. It will serve as a sort of scavenger hunt, with those participating eligible to win a gift basket.
The list is a 4×6 card displaying all of the events which are a part of the 12 Days of Christmas. Participants can take the card and get it stamped when they attend one of the events.
“Everyone loves a good scavenger hunt and we wanted a way to help track how many people are participating in the 12 Days of Christmas and what events are the most popular” said Dave Kirk, Visit Owensboro Destination Management. “We thought a fun Santa’s List would be the perfect way to gather that information.”
The lists can be picked up at four locations: Owensboro-Daviess County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Owensboro Convention Center, Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront, and Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Waterfront. The two hotel locations offer 24/7 pickup.
There are two versions of Santa’s list: one for locals where you must attend six event, and one for visitors where you must attend one event and stay in a downtown hotel.
“Each of the participating locations in the 12 Days of Christmas have been given stamps so just tell them you want your list stamped when you attend the event,” Kirk said. “Of course there are multiple options for getting your stamp for Energy on Ice as it’s open multiple times during the 12 Days of Christmas.”
After completing Santa’s List, participants must write their name and phone number on the back of the list and drop it off at any of the four locations they were available to be picked up. Completed lists will be entered in a drawing for a gift basket featuring an array of Owensboro items.
“The Christmas season will be coming to life in downtown Owensboro with a wide range of activities for all ages as part of our 12 Days of Christmas,” said Tim Ross, City of Owensboro Public Events Director. “We are excited to be highlighting so many different types of activities for both locals and visitors to enjoy this holiday.”
