Tis the season to think Elf! As in Visit Ventura’s Elf Giveaway, yes. But also as in mischievous fun, lips-sealed secrets, and the magical Big Picture too.
Now through Christmas Day, Visit Ventura is giving away a host of generous gifts, kindly donated by Ventura’s fun-loving and community-caring businesses. The giveaway works simply. Follow Visit Ventura on Instagram (@VisitVentura) and tag a friend and you’re entered to win two prizes — one for each of you. Winners will be randomly chosen that day. Enter as many times as you want. Elves don’t care much for rules.
And nope, the Visit Ventura Elf won’t tell you what the gifts are, because what elf blabs away secrets? And we should all enjoy a sense of mystery. But, as a holiday gift of sorts, the Visit Ventura Elf will tell you that, in the final happy runup to the finale, she will be giving away two one-night stays at Four Points Sheraton Ventura Beach (December 23), Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach (December 24), and the Ventura Beach Marriott (December 25 — Merry Christmas!)
It’s a fun contest for visitors and residents alike, and the chance to try out new businesses or revisit timeless favorites. Many Visitor Bureaus strictly target, well, visitors. Not Visit Ventura. Ventura’s gifts — Elf and otherwise — belong to residents too. Which is why Visit Ventura sees the Elf Giveaway as something bigger than the holidays, bigger even than elves. It’s a chance to bring a community together. And there can never be enough of that, in any season.
