Ripley’s Believe It or Not! attractions in Florida are about to become even more super with this summer’s Ripley’s Superhero Summer event.
Odditoriums in St. Augustine, Orlando, Key West and Panama City Beach will all host the event. Ripley’s will also donate a portion of the proceeds to a local charity during the event.
Ripley’s will also use the event to recognize real heroes and support local charities. Ripley’s is currently on the search for nominations for its new “Homespun Heroes” contest, which recognizes people who have gone far beyond expectation to make a difference in the local community.
On May 29, Ripley’s will choose one weekly winner to win a lifetime pass to Ripley’s and other additional prizes.
To nominate someone for “Homespun Heroes,” email Paul Hoffine at [email protected], and put “Hero” in the subject line. The nominees can be adults or children, as long as they have made a contribution to their school, community, or an individual.
Ripley’s is also hosting a $2,500 sweepstakes as a part of the Superhero Summer event. Guests can enter to win in the lobby of any Ripley’s Florida attraction. The winner will be randomly chosen and receive $2,500 and a matching donation to the charity of their choice. The sweepstakes will run from May 29, 2017 – Sept. 4, 2017.
