Patios, Parks, and Picnics program help you find them all

The Prince George Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Canadian Tire, is launching the Patios Parks and Picnics program, rewarding diners for supporting local food and beverage businesses this summer.

Patios, Parks and Picnics provides residents and visitors with a one-stop location to find local patios, parks and picnic areas. This is accomplished through regional and unique downloadable city maps to help diners plan outings this summer. Each map highlights restaurants with patios as well as local parks to enjoy takeout at. In addition, downloadable resources are available on the chamber website for local restaurants to advertise the program on their own social media channels or in their storefront.

“Through feedback from our members and participants in the Community Recovery Task Force, we’ve developed a program that can be implemented and promoted by restaurants, bars/brewpubs and retail to bring awareness over the summer months while more people are on holidays and looking for places to go and things to do,” said Todd Corrigall, CEO, Prince George Chamber of Commerce, in a news release. “We’ve created downloadable maps, legends and graphic assets so any business or individuals can grab them from our site, piggy back on the promotions and drive business to their locations for dine-in, take out and summer promotions. We hope this will help residents and visitors engage locally.”

Throughout the summer, the Prince George Chamber of Commerce team will seek out people who are supporting local restaurants and reward them with a $50 gift card provided by Canadian Tire. Additionally, a grand prize draw for a picnic basket full of amazing local swag will take place on September 10th. To enter the grand prize, the public is asked to take photos of themselves enjoying local patios or takeout picnics in the park and tag the Chamber of Commerce on Facebook or Instagram.
