RACVB launches "Get Picked!" contest for Rick Nielsen exhibit


Rockford area residents looking for a "staycation," or visitors from out of town will get a chance at a fun-filled weekend thanks to the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The Get Picked! Rick's Rockin' Radisson Giveaway celebrates the opening of the new Rick Nielsen exhibit, Rick's Picks: A Lifelong Affair with Guitars & Music at the Burpee Museum of Natural History.

Participants will get a chance to win one of two grand prizes. Both prizes include a two-night stay at the Radisson, two tickets to a VIP event celebrating the opening of the exhibit on August 10, two general admission tickets to the exhibit, and a $50 gift certificate to Famous Dave's BBQ.

To be eligible, participants must visit the contest page on the RACVB website and answer five trivia questions correctly.

The Rick's Picks exhibit tells the story of Nielsen's 40-year music career and includes guitars, clothing, amplifiers, travel documents, and personal memorabilia. The video-enhanced multimedia exhibit will also feature guitars from some of Nielsen's famous friends.

The exhibit will run from August 11, 2012 through April 10, 2013 at the Burpee Museum of Natural History. For more information, visit their website.
