Share the Chair to Win in Kawartha Lakes
Parks Canada, in partnership with the City’s Economic Development department, is launching a social media contest beginning June 1 to help promote the Red Chair program.
The Red Chair Experience program is intended to provide opportunities to connect with nature, and to experience the most unique and treasured places within Canada. Visitors are encouraged to seek out the ‘Red Chairs’ along the Trent-Severn Waterway and to share their experiences through social media.
“The Parks Canada Red Chair program is an excellent opportunity to promote tourism in Kawartha Lakes,” said Tourism Development Officer, Ashley Webster. “We are thrilled that Kawartha Lakes has been selected as one of the most unique and treasured places within Canada chosen as home to the Red Chairs.”
Parks Canada has installed several red chairs along the Trent-Severn and is encouraging visitors to discover them by exploring some of the most scenic areas along the Waterway.
“To help celebrate the launch of The Red Chair program we will be running a social media contest starting June 1st 2015,” said Ms. Webster. “Participants need to follow @ExploreKL on Twitter and Explore Kawartha Lakes on Facebook for a chance to win.”
Be the first to find all of the Parks Canada Red Chairs in Kawartha Lakes and use the hashtag #SharetheChair, and you could win. Full contest details will be posted on the Explore Kawartha Lakes Facebook Page on June 1, 2015 at 8 a.m.
Hint…there are more than two and fewer than ten red chairs in Kawartha Lakes.
Good luck and have fun exploring the Kawartha Lakes and the Trent-Severn Waterway.
