The time has come for Vernon residents to become super sleuths, in an effort to boost local tourism.
The third annual Mission Possible, which runs from June 30 until July 15, is hosted by the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce.
During Mission Possible, residents will seek to find classified information at specific locations across the city. Once the information is found, it can entered to win prizes.
“Mission Possible provides residents a fun and engaging opportunity to be tourists right here at home,” said the Vernon Chamber GM, Dan Proulx. “Tourism is a significant anchor of our economy through employment and diverse amenities, and we can all play a role in ensuring long-term growth and vitality of the sector.”
Competitors must visit at least one of the following businesses: Cambium Cider, Okanagan Science Centre, Sun Country Cycle or the Vernon Farmers’ Market.
Once on site, visitors will have to find a secret code word and then fill out a ballot. Participants can go to just one location or all four during the campaign.
The grand prize is the ultimate stay-cation, which includes two nights at Predator Ridge Resort, plus dinner, a 12 pack of ciders from Cambium, $100 gift card to Sun Country Cycle, monies for the Vernon Farmers Market and an after hours gathering for you and up to 10 guests at the Okanagan Science Centre.
