This month, in recognition of Valentine’s Day, our Downtown Portland and Downtown Clean & Safe teams partnered with local businesses to create a free Valentine’s Day package for TEN lucky participants. Packages included an overnight stay with a choice of the Dossier or Hotel deLuxe (Provenance Hotels), champagne for the room, a box of artisan chocolates from Azar Indulgences, a special gift from Portland Gear, and dinner for two at SouthPark Seafood ($100 value).
Participants were required to post “Why I love Portland” messages on their social media platforms, tagging Downtown Portland and using the hashtag #LoveDowntown2022. The social media campaign ran from Friday, January 28 through midnight, January 31 on all Downtown Portland platforms: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
Winners were notified on February 2, and included: Vienna, Russ Tomka, and JR (from Twitter), Moods Boutique and Alexander Butler (from Facebook), Amandagourshetty, Passion4planet, Workwinsave, Gorema2686, and Ali_golightly_portland (from Instagram).
Take a look at some of the reasons why our followers love Portland:
