CBDA Reindeer Roundup

Join the Coos Bay Downtown Association starting on November 29th for the Downtown Reindeer Roundup. Ruckus has convinced Santa’s reindeer to explore downtown instead of going back to the north pole following Santa’s visit. The reindeer will be hiding in businesses downtown.
Find the reindeer in participating businesses, take a picture and then fill out an entry form to be entered to win a grand prize. (Business hours vary) 

The event will end on December 21st when the reindeer will return to the north pole to help Santa deliver toys to children around the world.
