Passport Challenge 2019

Summer is just around the corner and with it comes the Gallia County CVB’s summer program, the passport challenges. Free and open to the public, this program is a fun way for folks of all ages to learn about Gallia County’s history and popular destinations.The program begins May 3rd and runs through August 2nd.

Each challenge consists of ten locations that participants must visit and either snap a selfie or have their passport paper stamped. Once all locations have been visited participants return completed passports to the Gallia County CVB, located at 441 Second Avenue, and receive prizes which include water bottles and exclusive discount cards to local businesses in Gallipolis. Those who complete the challenges will also be entered to win prizes all summer long. There are two challenges, the city challenge exploring downtown Gallipolis and the county challenge finding locations throughout Gallia.

According to Assistant Director Kaitlynn Halley, “The passport challenge is a fantastic opportunity to get the kids out of the house this summer. The most popular phrase we hear is, ‘I had no idea we had...’, which goes to show you can live in Gallia your whole life and it can still surprise you!”. This summer is the fourth year of the challenges and it will be featuring several new locations as well as some past favorites. 

Visit the Gallia County CVB on May 3rdfor the Passport Challenge Kick-Off during First Friday to get your copies of the challenges.
