District 1 Councilman Diego Bernal and the City of San Antonio’s Downtown Operations Department have created the Downtown Tuesday “Freeze Frame” Photo Contest, as a way to thank local patrons for supporting San Antonio’s Downtown this past year.
“We're seeing an extra 750 cars each Tuesday visiting downtown,” said Councilman Bernal, whose district includes the center city. “For a new program that's just getting started, that's just one year old, that's tremendous progress.”
The Freeze Frame! Photo Contest encourages San Antonio residents to share their Downtown Tuesday experience through the Downtown Tuesday social media pages. By posting their photos online through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest, they are entered in the contest and able to share their Downtown Tuesday experience with others. Prizes will be awarded weekly through March 12, 2013.
Participants of the Freeze Frame! Photo Contest have the chance to win books, Rio Cruises barge tickets, or one of 11 hotel stays, good for one night at:
- Crockett Hotel
- Grand Hyatt
- Hilton Palacio del Rio
- Holiday Inn Express
- Omni La Mansion del Rio
- Residence Inn Alamo Plaza
- St. Anthony Hotel
- Towne Place Suites
and $200 in gift certificates to ORO Restaurant at The Emily Morgan Hotel a Doubletree by Hilton; Zocca Cuisine D ‘Italia at The Westin Riverwalk; and The Bike Waiter.
The Grand Prize winner will receive FREE PARKING at the St. Mary’s Garage for six months. Thank you to our contest sponsors, including Rio San Antonio Cruises, Crockett Hotel, Grand Hyatt, Hilton Palacio del Rio, Holiday Inn Express, Omni La Mansion del Rio, Residence Inn Alamo Plaza, St. Anthony Hotel, Towne Place Suites, San Antonio Hotel & Lodging Association, and The Bike Waiter.
