Ripley’s launches new “Homespun Heroes” contest to recognize people making a difference in their community

All Ripley’s Believe It or Not!® attractions in Florida are hosting a new event for some unbelievable summer fun – Ripley’s Superhero Summer!

Ripley’s will be recognizing real-life heroes and supporting local charities. Ripley’s Orlando is looking for nominations for its new “Homespun Heroes” contest that will recognize people who have gone above and beyond to make a difference in their community.

Starting May 29, Ripley’s will choose one weekly winner who will win a lifetime pass to Ripley’s and other prizes! Homespun Hero nominations for the Orlando area should be emailed to Paul Hoffine at, and make sure to put “Hero” in the subject line. Nominees can be adults or children. Ripley’s is looking for people who have made a difference in the quality of life for their community, school, or an individual!

Ripley’s is also offering a $2,500 sweepstakes as part of Ripley’s Superhero Summer. This is open to anyone – all people need to do is enter in the lobby of any of Ripley’s Florida attractions. The randomly selected winner will get $2,500 and a charity of their choice will also get $2,500! The sweepstakes will run through May 29, 2017 – September 4, 2017.
