Win a prize with your story of romanceHad a romantic experience near the Morro Rock in Central California? If so, the local tourism boosters of Morro Bay are looking for you.
The Morro Rock, an iconic symbol of the California Coast and historic landmark, is often the scene for wedding proposals and is considered something of a love magnet. The town of Morro Bay wants people to come forward with their romantic stories involving the rock in a promotion called "Engage the Rock."
The rock is 500 feet tall so people are drawn to pop the question in front of the rock. Sometimes they'll even go out on kayaks to propose. The couples who have done so are now encouraged to share their stories by uploading a story and photo to the Morro Bay website.
The payoff? Readers will vote on the best stories and each month those winners will be given wedding-related gifts as prizes. The very best will compete for a $500 grand prize.
To contact the Morro Chamber of Commerce, please visit their website at www.morrobay.org.
