Lessen the risk
Designated drivers can win free tickets to upcoming festivals
The Tyne Valley Oyster Festival is partnering with the P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission on a contest to encourage the use of designated drivers at the festival and at Rock the Boat Musicfest.
The Name Your Designated Driver contest will be run on the Rock the Boat Musicfest Facebook page (www.facebook.com/rocktheboatfest). Once there, participants can tag their designated driver for them to have a chance to win a free ticket to the show.
“Both festivals were a huge success last year and we wanted to look at how we could continue to grow them, especially Rock the Boat Musicfest,” said Tyne Valley Oyster Festival Chair Jeff Noye. “Promoting responsible drinking is a critical part of that growth strategy, so we thought we could encourage designated driving by offering a chance to win free tickets to those who take on that responsibility.”
RCMP in Prince County say they fully endorse the contest. A news release notes, “Making plans well in advance of any event that you attend means that you know how you are travelling and it doesn't include risking your life or the life of others.”
The Tyne Valley Oyster Festival runs July 29 to Aug. 2.
The Rock the Boat Musicfest is Aug. 1.
