The Carlsbad Village Association (CVA) will hold its 3rd Annual Spring Shop Hop on Saturday, April 20, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Carlsbad Village. Check-in begins at 11:00 a.m. at the CVA welcome table located on the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue. The first 100 people to check-in will receive complimentary reusable canvas bags.
The event will feature shopping specials and discounts from over 40 businesses (and the list is growing), merchant hospitality, light refreshments, food sampling, live music and a chance to win wonderful gifts from local Carlsbad Village businesses. Visit at least ten participating businesses listed on the Spring Shop Hop passport, have your passport stamped at each location visited, and return it to the CVA welcome table by 6:00 p.m. for an opportunity to win one of several fantastic prizes. No purchase necessary. The more locations you visit, the more opportunities you will have to win. Over $1,500 worth of prizes will be given away. Special prizes include complimentary nights at local hotels, salon and spa packages, dining and shopping certificates, entertainment tickets, and so much more!
“This is a great opportunity to connect the community with the wonderful small businesses in Carlsbad Village,” said Christine Davis, Executive Director for Carlsbad Village Association. “It’s a time to celebrate our Village as we welcome Spring to our downtown,” she added.
“Small businesses make a major impact on our local economy. Because they are smaller, they can provide more hands-on customer service than larger stores, they provide greater access to product diversity, and they create a sense of community. That’s why we look forward to supporting them at this event so much each year.”
