50 Activities. 31 Days. Lots of Prizes.

Starting on July 1, the Destination Carlisle Downtown Summer Bucket List returns for its third year! Earn rewards by completing 25 or 50 tasks and be entered to win prizes by random drawing activities, from eating al fresco at a sidewalk cafe to tracking down historic landmarks.

No tickets are required, and this go-at-your-own-pace activity runs until July 31.

Our list of activities will be available on our website at www.destinationcarlisle.org and on our social media starting on July 1.
Participation is easy! Just snap a photo of you doing* the activity and share it to Facebook or Instagram, tag Destination Carlisle and the appropriate business (if there is one for the task), and use hashtag #DCSummerBucketList. We're also asking that you share your posts to our main Facebook page, as we are apparently not able to see posts that are on private accounts. Then, put the date of completion beside the item on your printed list.

All lists are due in person at 56 West High Street or via destinationcarlisle@gmail.com by August 5. All turned-in lists will be entered into a random drawing for prizes donated by downtown businesses. Those completing at least 25 tasks will also receive a Carlisle-oriented reward. Those completing all 50 will earn an additional reward.

*Please note that adaptations of activities will be accepted for those with disabilities or to fit the comfort level of participants due to COVID-19.
