Festival goers can appreciate a week-long passport event as they explore the many parks, businesses, and historical spots in Essex. Businesses, stores, organizations, and restaurants are holding pop-up events, demonstrations, providing samples, and advertising specials during the week.
How it works:
Pick up an official passport at one the locations listed (when available). Bring your passport to the various locations and activities listed in the passport and receive an official sticker for each stop you visit. Drop off your passport at designated drop-off locations or bring it with you to Community Day on October 7th. The more stickers you collect, the more chances you have to win prizes from the Giveaway EXPLORAganza. No purchase is necessary.
