The Platteville Area Chamber of Commerce has added two new promotions for Hometown Festival Week this year.

To coincide with its “Shop Local” campaign and its Santa Bucks promotion, a special “Hometown Bucks” promotion has been organized.

Through Saturday any receipts for merchandise or services from any Platteville chamber member will be eligible for prizes. Receipts need to be brought into the chamber office to be documented and a participant will be eligible to win a number of Chamber gift certificates. For each $10 spent from a local chamber member business, one receives a chance to win. Receipts can be redeemed through Aug. 4. Winners will be announced on Aug. 5.

Another addition is the Art Walk to raise awareness of local artisans and locations where their art work can be found. This promotion is in the form of a passport that must be stamped by the business where the art work is located. When the card is complete, it can be dropped off to be entered into a drawing to win two $50 chamber gift certificates.

Participating businesses are Clare Bank, Driftless Market, Gallery M115 and Rountree Gallery. The Veterans Honor Roll also is participating; stamping will be available at the chamber’s table at the Party in the Park Thursday and at the Festival of the Arts Saturday. Passports are available at the chamber and any of the participating businesses.

This week’s events include Miracle Treat Day and the Party in the Park Thursday, Geek Trivia Night Friday, and the Festival of the Arts and Summer Garden Tour Saturday.
