Mesquite, TX – June 5, 2020 – Calling all competitors. To celebrate summer, the Mesquite Parks and Recreation Department is launching a social media contest called “The Mesquite Summer Challenge Series.” The social media competition will run from June 8 through September 4. The fun and goofy challenges will include a variety of interactive games that everyone can do at home and submit a video of their efforts to enter to win a prize. For more information visit www.CityofMesquite.com/MesquiteSummerChallenge or call the Parks and Recreation Department at 972-216-6260.
Each week on Monday, a video will be posted on the City’s Facebook page @cityofmesquitetx introducing that week’s challenge and providing instructions on how to compete. Free pre-packaged supplies will be available through a Rec-To-Go drive-through station every Monday from 6 - 7 p.m. at Florence Recreation Center, 2501 Whitson Way. The bags of supplies will be available to the first 150 people.
Competitors will be required to video themselves performing the challenge and post their video to that week’s challenge event on the City’s Facebook page. Entries are due by 3 p.m. each Thursday. All entries will be eligible to win a prize provided by the weekly sponsor. Winners will be announced each Friday on the City’s Facebook page.
Elizabeth Harrell, City of Mesquite’s Parks and Recreation Director, said, “As we continue to adapt to providing programs to the community during COVID-19, this will be a fun opportunity for people to get involved. The challenge is a great way for families and groups of friends to safely gather and compete in a recreational program.”
