We’re Kicking Off the Holiday Season With 12 Days of NEPA Giveaways
Thanks for following along and for supporting so many of NEPA’s amazing local businesses!
If there’s one thing we can always count on in Northeastern Pennsylvania, it’s local pride. DiscoverNEPA is built upon a sturdy foundation of local support, local enthusiasm and so many local success stories. We started this endeavor with a simple idea: let’s show the world why NEPA is one of America’s best places to live, work and play. And YOU followed along.
You joined us all year as we ventured out to local parks and on to so many hiking trails. We caught you checking out the Jeep (and sometimes offering a friendly wave) as we checked out awesome local restaurants. And there you were as we visited NEPA’s craft breweries and coffee shops and cool places to see. You read our stories and watched our videos and planned your weekends with our comprehensive events calendar.
Then, when our community needed it most, YOU showed up to help. You waited in sometimes longer lines, ordered your fair share of takeout, bought gift cards and shopped virtually. Your local pride and your unwavering support are this community’s greatest strength.
You, good people of NEPA, are the reason we’re here. And this holiday season we’ve teamed up with 50+ generous NEPA businesses to pay it forward with our 2nd Annual 12 Days of NEPA giveaways.
We’ve added dozens more incredible prizes and opportunities to win!
Once again we’re turning the first few weeks of December into the 12 Days of NEPA. And, this year, we’ve blown up the prize list to bring you twelve days of exciting contests.
It’s simple. Keep your eye on our social media channels from Tuesday, December 1 through Wednesday, December 16. We will launch a contest each business day on both Facebook and Instagram, and each contest will feature multiple winners.
Enter the contests by following the rules provided in each post. The contest posts also include a separate, non-social-media entry form located on our website.
Thank you and good luck. Oh… and check out the amazing NEPA businesses and contest prizes below.
