WBL Bear Hunt

How to play

Visit White Bear Lake businesses and restaurants, and when you spot one of the official decorated ReGrow WBL Bears, snap a photo of it and post on Twitter, Instagram and/or Facebook with the tags @ExploreWhiteBear and #ReGrowWBL. Be sure to let us know at which business you found the bear!  

Each photo submitted will be entered into a weekly drawing, which will be held live on Explore White Bear’s Facebook page at noon on Mondays, August 10-31. (Submission deadline is 11:59 pm Sunday the night before.) You may not submit the same photo twice.

        One grand prize will be awarded at the end of the month to the person with the most different bears posted by 11:59 pm on August 30th (i.e. multiple pictures of the same business’s bear are not eligible). No purchase necessary to win.

    How to participate as a business
      1. Download and print a Manitou Days Bear sheet (below).
      2. Decorate the Bear (color, glitter, your logo, feel free to get creative!)
      3. Hang your decorated Bear inside or outside of your business, and leave it on display through the month of August. Place the bear some place where it can be spotted in your business, (e.g. in your front windows, at a checkout counter, on a display shelf etc.

    That’s it!  Easy peasy.
