The Associated Press reports more people in the eight-state Mountain West region are expected to make a Labor Day getaway compared with last year.
AAA predicts 2.4 million people in the region that includes Wyoming will travel 50 miles or more during the three-day weekend. That's a 3.2 percent increase from Labor Day 2011. Penny Becker, director of Sheridan Travel and Tourism, said she's noticed rubber traffic has been on the upswing for a while now.
Becker said Sheridan's Labor Day weekend will include Don King Days and a hang gliding fly-in and holiday sales downtown, which she anticipates will draw a crowd.
