NewTown, Robins Federal launch Fiesta Challenge

NewTown Macon and Robins Federal Credit Union are partnering on a downtown promotion in conjunction with a fiesta-themed First Friday.

The contest, called “The Fiesta Challenge,” invites participants to pick up a sombrero at the downtown branch of Robins Federal Credit Union at the bottom of the Fickling Building on the corner Second and Mulberry streets.

Beginning Friday, participants are supposed to take their photo wearing the hat with as many First Friday posters around downtown as they can find, and then e-mail the photos to FirstFridayFiesta@gmail.com by May 4 at noon.

The winner will receive a gift basket with $100 worth of coupons to downtown businesses, plus $50 in Downtown Dollars. There will also be second- and third-place winners with prizes of $25 and $15 in Downtown Dollars.

Robins Federal Credit Union is the main sponsor for the next three First Fridays.
