Instagram Summer Challenge

Think there is nothing to do in Round Rock??  Think again!!

Back by popular demand, I am challenging you to check out all the fun there is to do in our great city with the Round the Rock Instagram Summer Challenge!  I have 50 fun things to do in our city – from free outdoor activities to yummy food & summer events – there is something to do every day!  I want you to try it out and tell us what you think….and here’s the kicker – You get a FUN Round Rock prize for doing so!

Now, thanks to the virus, many things have changed for us this summer. Events have been cancelled and places are not open. So we have tried to be as creative as we could with our list, but that means we had to add a few things that were “around Round Rock”. But that’s ok! It’s a great opportunity to explore the area around our city as well!

Here’s how it works:

  • Do one of the 50 activities listed below and take a picture of you at the location.
  • Add that picture to your Instagram account and use the tag: #roundtherocksummer
  • Follow our sponsors on Instagram to be eligible to win a prize: Monster Mini Golf & Laser Tag & The Yogurt Experience
  • Once you have completed 15 items on the list, send an email to me ([email protected]) telling me you have done so and what your Instagram name is
  • I will email you a coupon for your prize!
  • Continue to do the same throughout the summer and send me an email when you reach 30 items (they are cumulative) to receive the next tier prize
  • Follow @RoundtheRockTX on Instagram for more updates
  • One per family please

What do I win?

A few more necessary rules:

The Round the Rock Instagram Summer Challenge will begin on June 1, 2020 and last thru August 31, 2020. Contest is limited to one participant (Instagram Account) per family but we are not capping the age limit. The two tiered prizes are limited to one per family as well.  Please note that by submitting your photos and using the hashtag #roundtherocksummer, you are giving me permission to share your photo or use it in the promotion of the contest.
