Be a tourist in your own town (new Stockton Summer Passport offers fun, prizes)!

 

With summer now upon us, kids and grandkids out of school – gear up for some summer fun right in your hometown and county.

The Stockton Summer Passport allows you to be a tourist in your own town – and earn some goodies along the way!  The local Visit Stockton organization notes, “There’s plenty of fun to be had around town this summer—and soon you can enjoy deals and prizes as you explore Stockton. Visit Stockton introduces our new Stockton Summer Passport program!”.

How it works: pick up a Passport or conveniently print one at home to see the exclusive deals, discounts, and listings for events, venues, and restaurants; present your Passport at each location to take advantage of the specific offer and receive a stamp when redeemed; then turn in your completed Passport to Visit Stockton for prizes—it’s that easy!

Passport participants who collect at least eight stamps will receive a limited edition “Nicknames of the Past” t-shirt or tote bag along with other Visit Stockton swag. Additional giveaways and contests will also be conducted via the Visit Stockton social media channels. Participants who complete their entire Passport will be entered into a grand prize drawing at the end of the Stockton Summer Passport program.

The Stockton Summer Passport program will run from June 8–August 28, 2015. Passports are available at the Visit Stockton office at 125 Bridge Place, 2nd floor, and other locations around town in addition to an online version for downloading and printing at home.
