State Park Officials Tour Hardy

“We are ready to shop.” This was the consensus among the large group of primarily women who visited Hardy from several of the States1945507-L Department of Parks and Tourism Visitor Centers offices on a familiarization tour hosted by the Ozarks Gateway Tourist Council. The group was welcomed Sept. 26 at the Old Stonehouse Bed and Breakfast in Hardy before hitting the streets to enjoy the local shops. The event was held last week and was sponsored by the Ozarks Gateway Tourism Council.

Adam Davis, President of the Ozarks Gateway Tourist Council led the group to the welcome reception from Mammoth Spring.

Tour members were able to vist and shop in Hardy. Area businesses were encouraged to provide take aways about their businesses and the area for the group. The tour bus departed from Mountain View at Ozark Folk Center, then made stops in Mammoth Spring, where they gained Adam Davis, who led the bus tour to the Hardy reception.

All the Hardy area restaurants provided various deserts for the event. The Hardy Advertising and Promotions Commission and members hosted the event and provided fruit trays and gift bags for the participants. FNBC was also a contributor to the tour.

After departing the group were headed to Pocahontas and Walnut Ridge.

While the Ozark Gateway can not use their funds to promote items in their region, the visitors from various state park visitor centers can take away literature and experiences to promote the Spring River area in their respective regions throughout the state.

Other tours of the various regions are set for a later time. As president of the council, Davis will be making the trip during these familiarization tours.

“It is perfect, these people are able to promote our area in their areas throughout the state,” Davis said.
