Get Your Pumpkin Passport and Taste Your Way to Tahoe!

You can never have too much pumpkin! Throughout the month of October, 15 different Gilroy restaurants are featuring pumpkin-flavored dishes and drinks on their menus (from pancakes and pasta to muffins and martinis) as part of the city-wide Pumpkin People celebration.

To enter the Pumpkin People Restaurant Passport contest, just pick up a passport at any participating restaurant or the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce office. Purchase any of the featured pumpkin items and get a stamp for every participating restaurant you visit in October. Once you’ve got 12 or more stamps, you can turn your passport in for the chance to win a 3-day, 2-night stay in South Lake Tahoe!

To be eligible for the contest, passports with 12 or more stamps must be returned to the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce office at 7471 Monterey St. in downtown Gilroy no later than Friday, November 4, 2016. Be sure your name and contact information is on your passport. Passports returned with no name and contact information will be automatically disqualified. Selection of dates for the South Lake Tahoe stay are based on availability; holiday dates are not available.

We wish you all luck on your pumpkin passport tasting adventure!
