LA MESA -- When La Mesa's City Council decided to rebuild La Mesa Boulevard, they hoped new good things would come.
They couldn't have known the spurt of new restaurant, bar and retail experiences that, in fact, followed. Not just "one the boulevard" but throughout the Jewel of the Hill's downtown area.
Today, the Mesa is thriving with new developments, retail experiences, parks, restaurants and more. The secret is out - La Mesa is in! Residents don’t have to travel far to have an amazing dining, shopping or leisure experience.
So the city is asking the community and local businesses to join the City of La Mesa for the chance to win the first ever “Dine, Shop, Explore Social Media Photo Contest.”
“La Mesa has always had a special charm, but recently we have seen an influx of new and trendy businesses which are mixing with the established ones to create an even more vibrant community,” said La Mesa City Manager, Yvonne Garrett. “This social media contest is a fun way to share your unique La Mesa experiences, whether it be familiar favorites or new memories.”
Taking place over three days, the contest will inspire participants to showcase their most creative La Mesa experiences. Participants will be asked to take three pictures showing how they: 1) dine, 2) shop, 3) explore La Mesa. The six best and most creative entries will each receive gift cards ranging from $25-100. Businesses in turn will offer exclusive discounts, giveaways and special experiences, when feasible.
1. Select Facebook, Twitter or Instagram
2. Take 3 creative photos: 1 dining, 1 shopping, 1 exploring La Mesa
3. Use the hashtags
All entries much be posted by 11:59 p.m. July 8. Posting all three photos is required for valid entry. Purchase not necessary. For more contest rules and prize information please visit cityoflamesa.us.
