Get ready for a photo op. The Trenton Downtown Association (TDA) is giving away $100 gift cards for your selfies.
Every month, TDA will be awarding one lucky selfie taker with a $100 Love Local gift certificate for their #TrentonSelfie taken at the designated “Selfie Station” on South Warren Street (across from the Big Easy).
Local artist Leon Rainbow, with the help of artist R Fab, designed and created the #TrentonSelfie Station. In an interview with 6ABC, Rainbow said, “I wanted something that was kind of more urban, but was also like you were in a little environment.”
The bright Selfie Station depicts Rainbow’s vision. The mural is filled with miniature buildings representing the scenes of the downtown Trenton area, complete with a small dome resembling the Capital building. The comic-book-like artwork depicts a cracked floor designating the perfect standing spot for your #TrentonSelfie.
According to Patricia Hall, Executive Director of TDA, the #TrentonSelfie giveaway was created to promote the local, small businesses in the area. She told 6ABC in an interview, “We could draw attention to the area; bringing people into the downtown area to eat, to take advantage of some of our programs that we have down here.”
The $100 Love Local gift certificate prizes can be spent at any of the participating restaurants/shops in the downtown Trenton area. Some featured stores include 1911 Smokehouse BBQ, Beauty World, Big Easy of Trenton, City Deli, Classic Books, Delias Empanada Cafe and Royal Cake Creations LLC.
Do not miss your opportunity to participate in this TDA contest. To submit your selfie, post your photo to your public Instagram account with the hashtags #TrentonSelfie and #LoveLocalTrenton. You could win big!
