(Seguin) -- The Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for "An Adventure of a Lifetime" Celebration. Tickets are now on sale for this year's Showcase Seguin trade show at the Seguin Coliseum. Show Day runs from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday followed by the Adventure of a Lifetime Celebration party from 5 to 8 p.m.
Showcase Chair KayLynn Hawkins says they are excited about the exhibitors and fun events that are being planned beginning with the Free Show Day.
"We will start our Show Day at 12. It will be 12 (noon) to 4 p.m. on Feb. 9th at the Coliseum. So we definitely want folks to come out and check out the day time activities, see who our vendors are there and that way, they'll be more excited to buy a ticket for the evening event. So for the daytime, they'll be able to come in and they will be able to participate in a few games. We'll have a live treasure map. So they'll get to walk the treasure map, see if they can find or win some treasures on it. We will also have a scavenger hunt that pertains to the vendors that we have participating this year. You can win prizes participating in the scavenger hunt as well," said Hawkins.
Hawkins says the fun will continue from 5 to 8 p.m. with a number of featured events. Those evening events, however, will be covered with a $25 ticket -- tickets that are now on sale.
"The night time event is the Adventure of a Lifetime Celebration. That will be from five to eight p.m. We have live entertainment again from Tin Roof. You will come into the Coliseum that night, a $25 ticket gets you lots of liquid refreshment and fun, sponsored by First Commercial Bank. You will also receive a couple of tickets for the opportunity to try to win a vehicle -- one from Seguin Chevrolet, one from Griffith Ford. You will also get a pirate coin. The pirate coin is going to allow you to try to win some of the pirate treasure. So you'll definitely want to come and hang on to that coin and see if you're a winner. We have six $100 cash prizes, a $250 cash prize, a $500 cash prize and a $1,000 cash prize to give away as well," said Hawkins.
Hawkins says due to this year's excitement, she is encouraging folks to buy their tickets now.
"I think the last thing we have to do is just get some more tickets sold. We really want people to come out to this. It's going to be so much fun. When I said before that it's going to be a real adventure, it is going to be a real adventure," said Hawkins.
Again, there is no cost to visit the participating booths during Show Day. Tickets for the Adventure of a Lifetime Celebration are $25 each and can be purchased at the Seguin Area Chamber office at 116 N. Camp St., from any ambassador or member of the chamber's board of directors. They can also be purchased online at www.seguinchamber.com.
