Quest For Local Loot in Lanesboro

Shop Local in Lanesboro and win prizes with Quest For Local Loot on April 28.

Shopping locally has never been more fun. Businesses in Lanesboro are participating in the Root River Valley Earth Day Celebration by encouraging you to shop local. And when you do you can win some great prizes.

Adults can participate in the Quest for Local Loot and it’s so simple. Participating businesses will have a Quest Poster in their windows as well as a pinwheel by their doors.

The Quest runs from 10 am – 2 pm on April 28. Quest brochures will be available at the tent in Sylvan Park on April 28 as well as in participating businesses. For example, you could win an overnight stay for two at The Cottage House Inn as well as other great prizes.

Winners will be drawn at 2 pm by each participating business. If you win you’ll receive a phone call. You can enter at each business only once, but you do have a chance of winning prizes from multiple businesses. How simple is that?

A complete list of participating businesses will be available on the Eagle Bluff website at: www.eagle-bluff.org under the calendar of events tab. Lanesboro businesses offer a wide variety of merchandise and experiences. So get out there, shop and have some fun.
