Santa and his reindeer came to Uptown…and they left footprints all around and the kids of New West are in charge of finding them.

Luckily, he’s left us a map.

Kids and their favourite adults are encouraged to check out the participating businesses to find a hoofprint hidden onsite.  Once the hoofprint is found, they can get their map checked off and will receive a holiday treat!

Any child who visits who has their adult fill out the form on the sheet and hand it in to any participating business will be entered to win one of three holiday baskets filled with items from the participating businesses, toys and gifts including a $50 GC to Royal City Centre. Each business visited gets an entry in the draw (so if you visit all 18, you get 18 entries).

Kids must be 12 and under to participate.  Their adult can be any age.

The Holiday Hunt runs from December 2-21    The winners will be announced on the My Uptown Facebook page on December 23.
