Greater Downtown offers Easter colouring contest

Old City Quarter

Three downtown shopping areas are offering a colourful Easter promotion, with a chance to win shopping sprees in a colouring contest for families. The Old City Quarter, Victoria Crescent and the shops of “downtown” have more than $1,000 in gift cards for future shopping and dining downtown.

“The three neighbourhoods are joining for this Easter promotion since we recognized these kinds of collaboration allow us to produce more efficient and effective promotions to attract folks to the whole of downtown.” says Kim Smythe of the Downtown Nanaimo Association. “Each neighbourhood has its own character and signature shopping outlets, so this gives people the chance to visit each area and find their own favourites.” 

Families are encouraged to go online and download colouring sheets for kids. The sheets are chosen to range from simple to complex so they’ll appeal to a range of ages. Once the colouring sheets are complete, they can be dropped off at a number of locations in the three neighbourhoods.  

The colouring sheet downloads and drop-off information is online at DowntownNanaimo.ca, OldCityQuarter.com, and Victoria Crescent’s Facebook page. Gift Cards will represent a variety of businesses in each area.
