Part art walk, part game, part urban adventure, participating in DTPHX Lotería is an easy and fun activity for the whole family. Just pick up a “tabla” (Bingo-like playing card) at any participating downtown business, or from a DTPHX Ambassador.
Each tabla will feature 16 downtown businesses depicted Loteria style — a colorfully-illustrated card symbolizing the location. Once you find the card that corresponds with the business (the artist-designed poster will be visible from the exterior), go inside and get your DTPHX sticker from an employee.
Players who get four across, in a row, diagonal, or a two-by-two box (4 images) anywhere on the tabla get a free sticker sheet or a commemorative enamel pin.
Fill the entire card to get a custom screen-printed Loteria poster by @hamsterlabs (while supplies last).
Stop by the Downtown Phoenix Information Center at CityScape Phoenix anytime between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 15 and Oct. 15, located at 1 E. Washington St., Ste. 230.
