Follow our map of participating stores and restaurants to find a hidden copper pumpkin in each store or business (even in courtyards, gardens, and window boxes.) When you do, you’ll receive a sticker for your passport! Affix it to that store on the map (or somewhere on your passport).
Drop off your completed passport with your contact information at one of our 16 drop-off boxes across the Thames St. shopping/dining district and you’ll be entered to win fabulous raffle prizes, for all ages.
The drawing will be held via live stream (more info to follow) on Thursday, November 30th at our ThamesGiving Closing Ceremony at O’Brien’s Pub! ☘️
Five fabulous prizes for the scavenger hunters with the most Instagram tags of #thamesgiving; please tag the stores & restaurants too! (need not be present to win if we can contact you)
Ten $100 gift value prizes or a gift certificate for passport submissions between 10-25 stickers; need not be present to win
Five $250 gift value prizes or gift certificates for passport submissions 26-50 stickers; need not be present to win.
Two family-friendly GRAND PRIZE Packages which are sure to delight anyone who is lucky enough to win them (>50 stickers!)
Plus, a few more surprises!
We will be indicating on this website which shops, restaurants, businesses and services have contributed to the Copper Pumpkin Raffle, and will be sharing on our Instragram spotlights on @thamesgiving_npt, and on their own social channels.
We can promise you every prize is generous, very cool, and donated with deep appreciation for our community and our visitors!
**There is no cost to enter. Simply visit and engage with our merchant community, enjoy the Thames St. shopping and dining experience, and find the hidden copper pumpkins!**
We regret that a few errors or omissions were made in our haste to produce the first map, due to changes, late additions and a busy pro-bono team. We will reprint a new map for the 2nd half of the ThamesGiving Copper Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt season (Nov. 16th & 30th).
Fairness & EquityDisclaimer: If the ThamesGiving organizers observe or learn there has been any deception in the raffle contest, those passports will be discarded prior to the prize-winning pull. We plan to have a completely anonymous random raffle pull, hosted and witnessed by Newport’s Thames St. merchant community, so all have an equitable chance at winning these great prizes!
