Shamrock Search

Inspire the luck of the Irish with Downtown’s first Shamrock Search! Starting on the day of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and running all week long, look for the golden shamrock hidden at 10 small businesses (and don’t forget to pick up a gift while you’re there, too!). The more shamrocks you find across the neighborhood, the more chances you have to win a Downtown restaurant and retail gift card package.

Visit more businesses for more chances to win. Each business will have one golden shamrock hidden in store along with a QR code you can scan with your smartphone to enter. Winners will be randomly chosen on Monday, March 21 and contacted later that week. No purchase is necessary to win, must be 18 years of age or older to enter and win.
