Heads up, film buffs.
In case you haven’t heard, every Friday night between October 18 and November 22 (with the exception of November 15), The Awesome Fest presents double feature drive-in films at Eakins Oval!
For five weeks this fall, Eakins Oval transforms into an old-school drive-in movie theater thanks to The Awesome Fest and Enterprise CarShare, complete with on-site concessions serving up popcorn, soda, candy and soft pretzels, plus different food trucks each week to vend delicious eats.
Tickets for vehicle spots for the first two weeks of films sold out in a flash (though it’s always free for bicyclists and/or pedestrians to attend).
But now, Uwishunu has your way into the driver’s seat!
We’re making it easy to gain access to a front-row vehicle spot at Eakins Oval by giving away tickets to the Friday, November 8 screening of Arachnophobia and Big Ass Spider!.
One lucky winner will win seats in an Enterprise CarShare car.
Plus, the winner will receive a smorgasbord from the on-site food trucks — Surf and Turf and Delicias are set for November 8 — supplied by Awesome Fest and a Visit Philly Neighborhood Prize Pack, filled with swag including gift cards to Fairmount and Spring Garden neighborhood businesses.
The winner will be able to simply show up at Eakins Oval with up to three friends, slide into the Enterprise CarShare ride (which will already be on-site, front row, no driving required), sit back and enjoy the films.
The contest is open now through Wednesday, November 6, and the official rules are available right here.
Enter daily for the best chance to score!
