Macy’s Elf Adventure {$250 Gift Card Giveaway}

There are a few things that are a given on Thanksgiving Day in my home.

  • I will eat turkey.
  • My husband will watch football.
  • I will eat more turkey (and some chocolate pie).
  • We will all watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade!

As far back as I can remember, I have watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in awe of the Rockettes, Santa and of course the high-flying balloons. To be totally honest, the kid in me really wants to be one of those balloon holders (or maybe even a Rockette). But if I can’t be in the parade, I’d love to be at the parade! While this parade is much different that my beloved Mardi Gras, it is definitely on my bucket list.

This year, Macy’s is giving one of their Fans plus three guests a trip to New York City to attend the Thanksgiving Day parade! From the press release:

More than 10,000 of Macy’s Parade’s ever-rambunctious elves have magically taken residence at Macy’s stores nationwide and at locations in select cities. Fans who find one of Macy’s hidden elves, give it a makeover and submit their design to Macy’s Elf Adventure Facebook application could see their elf design transformed into a flying wonder and watch it soar in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! In addition, the winner and three guests will receive a trip to New York City to see the Parade live.

How do you find a rambunctious elf?

From August 9-24, 2011, look for clues on Macy’s Facebook page and via Twitter @macysevents or follow the hashtag #macyself. Daily clues will be posted along with a password. Once you figure out the riddle, whisper the password to a Macy’s department sales associate who will then reward you with a coveted elf. The daily clue and password can also be received by texting* ELF to MACYS (62297). Elves can also be found frolicking in 10 cities hosting Macy’s Elf-Apolooza, a fun filled event for the entire family.

I have an elf. Now what?

Let your imagination run wild! Design your elf, take detailed pictures of the front and back and submit your design by completing the Elf Application after “Liking” Macy’s on Facebook. The application will ask for the identification serial number found on the packaging of your official Macy’s Elf and all applications must be received by Wednesday, August 24th at 11:59:59 PM EST.

I am so proud of myself! My elf ROCKS! Will I win?

From the received entries, a judging panel from Macy’s Parade & Entertainment Group will narrow down the entries to the Top 85. These entries will be posted on Macy’s Facebook page on Tuesday, August 30th when voting begins. The Elf design with the most votes as of Wednesday, September 6th at 11:59:59 PM ET, will be announced in mid-September. And of course, the winning design will be transformed by the Macy’s Design Studio into a high-flying helium balloon!

What are you waiting for? Go find those elves and start creating!

  276. As a loyal Ohio State fan, I’d probably deck my elf out as an honorary Buckeye all in scarlet and gray (and green to keep him festive for the holidays). I’d probably give him a jersey with number 25 (for Christmas) and have him holding a football with a bow on top. Thanks!
