Check out the Fordcast Tour at the Mercer County Italian American Festival & Enter for the Chance to Win Prizes

We were recently approached by The Fordcast Tour to see if we would be interested in partnering with them for the upcoming Mercer County Italian American Festival taking place on September 23rd through the 25th! When they added that they wanted to give prizes away to our readers, we said, Assolutamente!!

If you are unfamiliar with the Fordcast Tour, it is an awesome summer-long tour created to celebrate the launch of the new 2012 Ford Focus. The Fordcast team has been making stops all across the northeast (I first met their team at Monmouth Park’s Crabcake festival) and, now they are down to the last two weeks of the tour.

At each event the Fordcast Tour crew will give you the chance to experience the event like a VIP in their Fordcast Tour Lounge! The lounge includes a Focus Fotobooth for you to strike a pose in, trivia games and tons of free Fordcast Tour swag! We should also mention that there will be 2012 Ford Focus vehicles on-site for attendees to check out in person. This vehicle has everything someone would want in a car – MyFord Touch capabilities that include voice commands and a rear-view camera, heated seats for those cold Jersey winters and best of all; it gets 40 miles per gallon!

Another perk of our partnership with the Fordcast Tour is that they are providing us with (3) $50 gift cards to giveaway to three lucky readers! The restaurant will be of the winner’s choice, as long as they are a registered food vendor at the Mercer County Italian American Festival and they accept payment via phone! Retweet the following message on Twitter to enter for the chance to win: Follow @JerseyBites & @FordcastTour & RT this msg 4 the chance to win a $50 restaurant gift card! #FocusVIP Deadline for entries is Thursday, September 22nd at 11:59pm. Winners will be notified on Friday September 23rd.

We will be selecting three winners in total. Don’t have a Twitter account? No worries, comment on this post below with your favorite feature of the Ford Focus as an alternative way to enter for the chance to win. You can view all of the features here:
