There are more than 150 places downtown this holiday season where you can shop with your Holiday Shopping Passport and collect stamps for your chance to win big.

Here’s how it works: every time you spend $10 at a participating business, a box on your passport will be stamped. When your passport is filled (20 stamps), complete the form and drop it off at a ballot box at one of the participating businesses. Each completed passport is a ballot for a draw to win downtown money.

The DBIA and participating businesses are working to minimize physical contact with Holiday Shopping Passports. When getting your passport stamped, please place it open on the counter of the business so that it can be stamped without being picked up by the business owner or employee.

Parking is free for two hours in downtown Peterborough in December, courtesy of the City of Peterborough.
