And the winner is....

Seaport Village held an online contest. An e-blast was sent out asking it's subscribers to send a picture of themselves in their favorite Seaport Village spot. The best picture won a VIP prize package for the Red Bull Air Races. The winners received covered seating on the second story balcony of Seaport Village that overlooks the bay. From there, they were able to sit in comfort all day with their friends as they watched the Red Bull planes race above. It was catered with their own private spread and Red Bull beverages, the package also included four free parking passes good for all day. Total value of the package was more than $600.

Great prize, right? Well, the winners were great too!! A woman named Kelly emailed a picture in. The picture is of her and her nephew Austin (who was visiting from Riverside). Before the picture was taken, they had just attended a Padres game and came on over to Seaport Village to have a burger and a cookie, watch the boats and wander the cobblestones. What caught my eye were their Padres shirts! I'm a huge Padres fan.

Austin was able to join Kelly for the Red Bull Air Races. And it was a treat to have them!
