Fairbanks First: Think Local

Every buying decision you make matters to our community. Check out our video that explains it best.

Join Fairbanks First

How to play:
1. Look for the stores with signs announcing: "There's a Moose on the Loose in our store! Help us find him!"
2. Once you find Mortimer, the Fairbanks First (orange) moose, have a staff member stamp your passport. No purchase required. But if you do buy something, you will receive a 10% discount for finding the loose moose. Passports will be available at the cash registers of all participating businesses.
3. Fill out your information on the passport and drop it off at the last business you visit. Each stamp on your passport equals an entry into the door prize drawing. Visit 4 businesses, be entered to win 4 times!

The following three videos are from presentations given by Kimber Lanning. We hope you find the information useful and relevant to enhancing our community of Fairbanks!
