MADISON COUNTY, N.Y. -- If you visit multiple cultural and historical sites around Madison County this summer and fall, you'll have the chance to win an iPad.
On Thursday, 12 sites in the county announced they've come together for the Cultural Historic Attraction Passport Program. When you visit one of the sites, you'll get a passport stamped, and once you visit eight sites, you can enter a drawing to win the iPad.
Some of the sites participating in this program are Lorenzo State Historic Site, National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum, and Stone Quarry Hill Art Park.
"From historic homes to museums to live music venues, we've got some great venues here in the county, so we want people to be introduced to a lot of them. If they go to one museum and have an opportunity to pick up that passport, they'll learn about 11 other sites that they can visit and learn from," said Jim Walter, Executive Director of Madison County Tourism.
The passport program will run through the summer and fall, and the drawing will be in December. Passports are located at all the participating venues, in visitor information kiosks, and online.
