The Chamber's Young Professionals Initiative partnered with the "Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier" campaign to co-host the Downtown Shreveport Scavenger Hunt last Thursday, May 4th. Festivities began at 5:00 pm at the Remington Suite Hotel, and hunt participants were asked to photograph scavenger hunt items using Instagram in order to compete for prizes provided by local tourist attractions and restaurants.
"There was a great turnout with people of all ages participating," said Erin Smith, Chamber Director of Marketing, Communications and Public Relations. "The YPI team even helped a few Instagram newbies discover how to use the app in order to play."
The scavenger hunt is part of a month-long celebration in Shreveport-Bossier aimed at incentivizing locals and visitors alike to explore local museums, restaurants and tourist attractions while taking advantage of money-saving offers. Complete details of the promotion and a list of the 25 exclusive offers are available at www.BeaFanofSB.com. While there, you can also enter to win a huge staycation package giveaway and find details of the Be a Fan Downtown City Tour scheduled for Saturday, May 13th.
Remember, anyone who takes advantage of the "Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier" offers during the month of May is asked to share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #BeaFanofSB.
