To show appreciation for local heroes and their service, Bass Pro Shops across the United States and Canada will open their doors from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday for a special evening of activities, shopping, discounts and drawings.
All local heroes and their immediate families are invited to attend (must show badge or other identification to attend the after-hours event).
Heroes and their family can visit the Christmas Village, Santa's Wonderland (available in 62 locations) and enjoy activities such as slot car racing, remote control cars and trains, as well as get a free picture taken with Santa until 9 p.m.
Special offers for local heroes night include a 10-percent discount on photo packages purchased in-store and on regularly priced items. Plus, they can take advantage of sales offered throughout the store until 9 p.m.
To honor local heroes, a keepsake ornament will be distributed to the first 100 heroes (18 years and older), and they can enter the drawing for a chance to win a $25 Bass Pro Shops gift card, all beginning at 7 p.m.
Kids are offered a free craft activity during the event (while supplies last or until 9 p.m.).
