Haven’t entered our #summerinmilly contest? You’ve got three more days! Starting on May 18, our summer contest was a huge hit in the Milledgeville community, garnering almost 200 posts among Instagram users! Using #summerinmilly, users tagged their photos at popular Milledgeville locations. When scrolling through the hashtag on Instagram, you’re greeted with familiar places all over our gorgeous town! Shots of popular eateries, kayaks on the Oconee River and beautiful sunsets on the lake are just a few of the great photos we received in the past three months! We even had local businesses, such as Chatter Boutique (chatterboutique) and local Coldwell Banker locations (@cbssk_wr and @cbssk_mville) participate!
The Instagram user who uses #summerinmilly the most, between May 18 and August 31, will receive a GIANT Milledgeville themed basket. Bursting with $10 gift cards to mostly every restaurant downtown, Georgia College goodies, a Peach State Pride koozie, $15 to Jack and Milly, and free tickets for two to the Old Governor’s Mansion, the Old Capital Museum, Lockerly Arboretum, and our very own CVB’s trolley tour, you’re going to be sad when this contest is over! Currently in the lead is Instagram user @tmgonz976, followed closely by @rickyruckus01 and @just_lacey_things. Thanks so much to everyone who used #summerinmilly; Milledgeville has loved your creativity and fun explorations!
You don’t have to wait for a contest to post photos of our beautiful city! Instagram users are always encouraged to use #ilovemilly and tag @milledgevillega in all pictures they post around Milledgeville. Who know, you might even see your picture on the official Milledgeville social media! We can’t wait to see what things you find while exploring Milledgeville.
