One winner will be randomly selected to win $100 in Downtown Dollars, and two winners will be randomly selected to win $50 each in Downtown Dollars.

Share photos of your favorite discoveries on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for a chance to be selected to receive $10 in Downtown Dollars — no purchase necessary, and three winners will be chosen.

Oct. 23 will bring the Fall Shop Hop, during which participating businesses downtown will offer fall-themed specials and features. Grab a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area beverage and enjoy the fall-like atmosphere downtown, with DORA drink purchases going toward the Shop Hop Passport.
