Community Candyland Campaign

Join us as we Explore Aurora and bring the joy of the holiday season to your favourite small businesses and support organizations!

Here’s how it works:

We’ve created 12 challenges for you to take part in around town. Every Monday (starting November 9th, 2020), we will release 2 new challenges for you to complete.

You then have 1 week to complete the challenges and post a photo on social media tagging @exploreauroraon and using the hashtags #exploreauroraon and #communitycandyland.

At the end of each week we will draw a winner.

Here’s the BEST part! The winner gets to pick:
1. A $50 gift certificate from Explore Aurora to their favourite local business.
2. A support organization that Explore Aurora will donate to in their name.

Step on to this magical road of giving back with us for the next six weeks and help us celebrate our incredible community and wonderful small businesses.
