Find Freddy the Frog was a marketing initiative designed to highlight small, locally owned businesses in downtown Blacksburg, aimed at reminding the community members how much there is to offer when you shop small.

Freddy spent a month visiting and hiding in the small local stores in downtown Blacksburg, inviting the public to come find Freddy first to win prizes.

Clues to Freddy’s whereabouts were posted on the downtown Blacksburg Instagram and Twitter accounts @downtownblacksburg and @dtblacksburg using #FreddyFrogdtburg.

This year, due to popular demand, you can join the fun by following Freddy’s page on Facebook in addition to Instagram and Twitter.
