Win a Family Field Trip or a Chrysler Pacifica #PacifiKids


The A Parent in Silver Spring crew is all about family field trips…it’s why we started this blog about Washington with kids, charting all the cool ideas we have encountered when we get out of the house for adventures as a family! We, like all our fellow DC-area families out there, have logged some serious mileage on our cars in the pursuit of exciting and educational outings with our kids.

Which is why this Chrysler contest is the coolest: Families who live within 100 miles of the District of Columbia can win the use of a brand new Chrysler Pacifica for a week, plus a $100 gas card! With your week-long extended Test Drive and that sweet gas money, you and your family can pursue some seriously amazing field trips…and even take that family road trip of your dreams.

Entering is easy-peasy, just go to the Chrysler PacifiKids website and fill out the fun “permission slip”-style entry form. There you will add your family’s photo and share your plan for your ultimate family field trip. Two DC-area families will be selected.

And get this, we are all eligible to win one of the two grand prizes: an all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited Platinum! The Pacifica is a fully loaded, cutting edge technology-packed mini van. It has innovative entertainment and high technology features, and top of the line safety features. And its not just parents who dig the Pacifica, kids are such big fans of this vehicle that they have been known to staff Chrysler dealerships…

My son Charlie checked out the Pacifica’s features with me, and he was wowed by the available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, which will find a space and steer you in using ultrasonic parking sensors. Daughters Eve and Alice covet the Uconnect Theater with dual HD seatback-mounted touchscreens with built-in games, apps, USB video and a Blu-Ray/DVD entertainment system. Myself, I’m awed by the built-in and fully-powered Stow ‘n Vac vacuum that extends throughout the entire cabin, which would make having a snack- and dirt-free car possible without lugging the shop vac fro the basement!

To enter to win this awesome brand new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited Platinum minivan, all we have to do is come back to the Chrysler PacifiKids website between November 12-18 and vote on our favorite #fieldtrip. Just vote online to (fingers crossed!) win.

If you happen to be reading but do not live in the DC area, you may still be eligible to win a Chrysler PacifiKids Test Drive if you live within 100 miles of one of these city centers: Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; Cleveland, Ohio; Dallas, Texas; the District of Columbia; Los Angeles, California; Minneapolis, Minnesota; New York, New York; Phoenix, Arizona; and San Francisco, California. Enter between now and October 26, 2016.

And EVERYONE who votes on their favorite field trip ideas between November 12-18 at the PacifiKids site can win one of the two brand new cars, no matter where in the 50 US states you live.

I hope you win!
