Passport to Summer Fun in Iowa City!

It’s official:  today is the FIRST day of summer! I can’t think of a better place to spend the long, summer days than Iowa City.  Good news: while you’re running around visiting all of your local favorites this summer, we are excited to let you know that you can pick up some extra goodies and discounts with our Passport to Summer Fun!

::How it Works::

1.  Print out the passport.
2. Visit each of the places on the passport between Monday, June 20th and Friday, July 29th.  While you’re there, enjoy an extra discount or gift, courtesy of each business listed (details below).
3.  Get your passport stamped in each designated square, and post a photo using #icmbpassport at each location.
4.  Take a picture of your completed passport and mail to: info {@} iowacitymomsblog {.} com no later than Sunday, July 31st. (Winner will be announced August 1st)
5.  Each stamp/sticker will earn you one entry into the drawing for the grand prize!  (In other words, if you don’t make it to every spot, you can still have a chance to win!)

**Please Note:  These passport discounts are for one-time use only, and there is a limit of 1 passport per family (up to 6 people).  If your immediate family is larger than 6 people, please contact us for more details.
