A- Tisket -a –Tasket, I want to win that Picnic Basket!

To encourage everyone to slow down and enjoy the historical gems of Placer County we are giving away three grand prize picnic baskets full of prizes to those who visit four or more museums. It’s free! Simply pick up a “Get Up and Go Card,” have it stamped at four museums and deposit your ticket at any of the 18 museums. Winners will be drawn at the end of the weekend and need not be present to win. Get Up and Go Cards are available at all museum sites.

In addition to the three Grand Prizes each museum has created their own picnic baskets full of treats, books, gift certificates and more. Drawing tickets can be purchased for $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. After purchasing your ticket deposit it at the museum that has your favorite basket and you are eligible to win that prize too!
