Jingle Elf Quest 2013 In Downtown Albany, NY

When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.
Where: Participating Locations, Downtown Albany, NY

Back for the the third year, the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District (BID) presents the "Jingle Elf Quest" which will begin Wednesday, December 4th and run through Wednesday, December 11th, 2013.

This free holiday event calls on Jingle Elf Questers (in other words, you!) to search downtown businesses within the Downtown Albany BID looking for elves. Those who are lucky enough to spot an elf have the chance to win both daily prizes and a grand prize!

How It Works:

Elves will be hidden in plain sight inside businesses throughout Downtown Albany, and it's up to you to find them. So while you're out doing your holiday shopping downtown, glance around store shelves, displays and other locations to see if you can spot one!

All elves resemble the photo at right and have their names written on their hats or elsewhere across the photo.

If you find one, snap a photo of YOU and the ELF (you must both be in the photo) and share the picture in one of the following ways:

  • On Downtown Albany NY’s Facebook page (@downtownalbany)
  • Via Instagram include #jingleelf in your post & tag @downtownalbany
  • Twitter @albanybid
  • Via email at jdavid@downtownalbany.org

Each picture with an Elf at a different location is worth ONE (1) Elf Point. The Jingle Elf Quester to earn the most Elf Points first will be awarded the Grand Prize, details below.

Find Reagan:

Due to their nimble and slinky ways, elf sightings are incredibly rare. The littlest elf, Reagan, is so excited to shop for her brothers and sisters that she moves around to a different location each day. She won't visit any of the businesses already listed on the Jingle Elf Page.

The only way to find her is by solving her clues which will be posted daily by 9:00 AM at the Downtown Albany Website. Check back every day between December 4 - 11, 2013 for a new clue. Each photo with Reagan at a different location is worth two (2) additional Elf Points (for a total of 16 extra Elf Points)!

Prizes:

There will be a daily drawing for prizes for 3 Questers: most creative photo, best group photo, and one randomly selected entry. THese prizes include gift certificats, event tickets, and more!

Go for the grand prize and find as many elves as you can between December 4th - 11th. The Jingle Elf Quester that finds the most elves during this timeframe will win a $500 gift certificate to a business of their choice! (Must be located in the Downtown Albany BID.)

New This Year! Joing the Jingle Elf Quest-Capades
