"Discover Astoria"

Mon, Nov 14, 2011

The Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) announces it is time to “Discover Astoria.” ADHDA encourages you to participate in a shopping treasure hunt this holiday season. Take a journey into our Downtown Astoria shops to find the perfect gifts for the season and, while you shop, enter for a chance to win your own gifts.

Your journey can begin as early as Monday, November 21st! Head downtown to pick up your “passport” at participating downtown merchants and start exploring the deals. On every stop of your journey you get another chance to win fabulous prizes! If you fill up the “Discover Astoria” passport by visiting all local participating merchants, you will have the opportunity to win the Grand Prize.

Look for special late night shopping (between 5 and 8 p.m.) on November 26th following the holiday kick-off events and downtown lighting ceremony at the Liberty Theater. Check the ADHDA Facebook page for an up-to-date listing of participating businesses.
ADHDA encourages you to “Discover Astoria” and make a conscious effort to shop locally – not only during this holiday season, but beyond it. Are you aware of all that our retailers and service providers have to offer?

If you have any questions please contact Downtown Coordinator Blaire Buergler at 503.791.7940 or
