Award winning Girls Night Out Returns to the Gig Harbor Waterfront!

Goodie Bag sales begin Oct. 29th!

Gig Harbor, WA – October 7, 2015 - The Downtown Waterfront Alliance’s 6th Annual Girls Night Out returns to Gig Harbor on Thursday, Nov 12th! Recently awarded Outstanding Promotional Event by the Washington State Main Street Program, Girls Night Out presents an all-day opportunity for ladies to “Shop and Dine from 10 'til 9.” Pre-sales for the ever-popular Goodie Bags go on sale Thursday, October 29th at participating downtown waterfront businesses.

Goodie Bags, one of the most popular aspects of the event, are filled with fun trinkets, games and surprises from generous downtown waterfront businesses. In previous years the bags have sold out leaving some disappointed. This year, 1500 bags will be available at a cost of $10 each at businesses that display a “Buy Your Goodie Bag Here” sign. Ladies should plan to pre-purchase their bag early! When a Goodie Bag is pre-purchased, they receive a valuable Event Program filled with information that includes maps of the participating businesses, activities, door prizes and coupons – making it easy to plan their day ahead of time. Pre-purchasing a Goodie Bag guarantees one will be available for them when they come to Girls Night Out on November 12th. A listing of businesses pre-selling bags will be available on Facebook at Girls Night Out Gig Harbor Waterfront. Goodie Bag pre-sales will continue as long as supplies last.

Parking will be available at the Methodist Church on Pioneer Way. This year the Gig Harbor Trolley will join a small fleet of limousines throughout the downtown waterfront to provide complimentary transportation and add to the shopping fun and your convenience. The service operates between 10am and 9:30pm with designated pick up/drop off points starting at the Methodist Church.
