Many don’t realize what great spaces and places we have in Red Deer but our gnomes do, and they want to share it with one and all this summer. Our gnomes are special, just like our community, and we have asked them to join us this summer to play one of their favorite games “Hide n Seek”. You too can play with us and experience “our Red Deer”.
Our little gnomes have hidden all around our beautiful City & County business areas waiting for you to seek them out. The game is simple. But our gnomes have laid out some rules for us to follow so be sure to take note so you don’t miss out on any of the fun or rewards. Link up with us on our social media feeds held under Hotels Red Deer and /or our game hashtag “#RDSummerofGnomes” so you can get hints and images on their hiding spots. We hope that while you are here, you will look for our gnomes. They may be in businesses, parks, hotels, really anywhere. If you find one, take it along on your Red Deer experience and before you depart, hide them in a new spot for someone else to find. Please don’t hang onto to them for long as we want everyone to be part of the fun. BUT before you leave them, we must advise that our gnomes never like to be alone for too long so you need to take a pic of them in their new spot, leave a subtle hint to their location and include our game hashtag (#RDSummerofGnomes), then post on your preferred social media platform which allows them to meet a new friend soon. By ensuring you follow these rules and posting on your preferred social media platform you will be entered in to win one of 3 e’gnome’ous prizes (1 entry per participant). Plus, for every post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram we will be donating $0.25 to support and assist the Youth Campership Program.
We have promised our friends at Youth HQ that we would all take good care of them while we played our game. Gnomes love our youth, just like our members and partners love Red Deer, so come and experience some “gnome’ous” fun in Red Deer this summer. Once the promotion closes, we will ask to have all the gnomes returned back to our partner hotels; once received we then display and place them out for a silent auction for those interested in bidding – all those funds also going back to Youth HQ.

Promotion runs from July 3rd to Sept. 4th, 2018.
