The Summer on the Shore promotion offers residents and visitors the chance to win a 2017 Subaru Forester among other prizes by visiting participating attractions, shops, restaurants and events.

Participants can download the free App in Google Play or the Apple Store. When visiting one of the more than 50 locations in the Region, visitors can scan the QR code with their smartphone to "stamp" their passport. Visitors who collect at least six stamps are automatically entered to win a brand new car and other prizes.

History buffs can visit the John Dillinger Museum in Crown Point, families can follow their sweet tooth to Albanese Candy Factory, beachgoers can visit Marquette Park and Beach in Gary. More than 50 locations include a Summer on the Shore Passport QR code from Michigan City and Chesterton to Munster and Hammond. The contest is free to enter, no purchase necessary.
