Buffalo will be one of five communities in the State of Wyoming that will host National Tourism Week May 7-15.
Buffalo Chamber of Commerce Director Angela Jarvis explains what the honor means to Buffalo.
Tuesday, May 10th is Travel Rally Day, and the Buffalo Chamber will host a reception at the Bozeman Trail Steakhouse to award local chamber members their REACH (Rare and Exceptional Achievements for Customer Service and Hospitality) Awards.
Buffalo Mayor Randy Dyess will make a proclamation and Diane Schober, State Travel and Tourism Director, will give a presentation.
The week will start on Saturday the 7th with the Jim Gatchell Museum and the Occidental Hotel hosting open houses from 10am to 3pm with free refreshments, free admission and free guided tours.
There will be opportunities to win $50 in Buffalo Bucks and to win free advertising for local businesses. Jarvis tells us more about the week's events.
The goal of Travel Rally Day and National Travel and Tourism Week, according to Jarvis, is to give the general public a greater appreciation for tourism's impact on the community and those whose jobs and livelihoods depend on the industry.
