Splash!MOB contest takes over Issaquah
September 17, 2013
Issaquah shoppers and diners may have noticed a slew of richly decorated salmon perched among city businesses and restaurants.
The fake fish hold the key to a rather hefty prize.
The Salmon Days Festival’s Splash!MOB: The Ultimate Salmon Quest returns this year with a grand prize of $650 worth of local gift cards given to a lucky winner who completes the salmon scavenger hunt.
Contestants can pick up an official game card online at www.splashmobgame.org or at any one of 20 participating Issaquah businesses.
The card resembles a bingo sheet, but each of the 20 squares is filled with the logo of a local business. Salmon seekers must visit each business and find the hidden, decorated fish to receive a stamp on their game card.
Once the card is completed, bring it to the Issaquah Visitor’s Center by noon Oct. 4 to be eligible for the grand prize drawing.
Names will be drawn Oct. 4 for both the $650 prize and for a second-place prize of $250 worth of local gift cards. Winners do not need to be Issaquah residents, and they do not need to be present at the drawing to win.
The gift cards are from merchants including Fischer Meats, Integrity Automotive and Wild Fin American Grill.
