The winter and holiday season of 2020 will be different in Downtown Spartanburg, but there are still ways to celebrate the season, get in the spirit and support local businesses while you do it
The City of Spartanburg, in partnership with downtown businesses, launched the Snowman Scramble Scavenger Hunt to add to downtown’s festivities. The Snowman Scramble – along with Skating on the Square, new parking and additional business promotions – offer ways for local businesses to safely welcome customers this winter while taking the necessary precautions during COVID-19.
“It’s really to get you exploring some downtown businesses you haven’t been into or ones that have come to fruition,” said City Special Events Coordinator Megan Keul on the City’s podcast.
The Snowman Scramble asks participants to find 10 snowflakes around downtown to help “build” a snowman. Once you’ve found the 10 snowflakes, you can visit www.surveymonkey.com/r/KG68CZH to fill out a quick survey and win a prize.
Oh, and make sure you share photos of your snowflake hunt using #stuckonspartanburg, and tag the city on Facebook (@Spartanburg, SC) or Instagram (@cityofspartanburg).
The scavenger hunt is open through the end of January. Prizes are provided by downtown businesses and everyone who completes 10 items on the scavenger hunt will be eligible for the grand prize which will be more than $100 in SpartanBucks that can be used around retailers downtown and across Spartanburg County.
