Citizens of Port Colborne, beware! The city is trying its best to frame you.

Fortunately, residents can be assured the police won’t be involved.

As part of their #PortColborneStaycation promotion, Port Colborne is setting up oversized picture frames throughout the city at nine different locations.

For the month of August, contestants need only to get a photo of themselves and then post it on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts with the hashtag #PortColborneStaycation to be entered into the contest.

“This is the year for road trips, backyard adventures and summer staycations. With beautiful beaches, a vibrant waterfront community with boutiques, restaurants, and cafes, multiple hiking trails and parks for nature enthusiasts, exploration is endless in Port Colborne,” said the city in a release.

“This South Niagara coastal community is your perfect destination for a weekend getaway, daytrip, or even just a random sunny Sunday cruise.”

Participants will get the chance to win the Ultimate Port Colborne Staycation prize package which includes:

  • Two cruiser bikes with baskets
  • $250 in gift cards to local Port Colborne dining establishments
  • $250 in gift cards to local Port Colborne businesses
  • A private ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour of the Port Colborne Historic and Marine Museum
  • A Port Colborne Public Library package which includes a variety of books and prizes for all ages
