Participants must be over 18 years old and visit a minimum of five homes to be entered in the drawings to win a $500 cruise gift certificate; a one-week summer vacation at Williamsburg Plantation in Willamsburg, Va.; a trivate inshore fishing charter for four; or one of many local business gift certificates, gift baskets and donated prizes.
