Ozark Gateway Celebrates Tourism Week on Second Friday


This year National Tourism Week celebration coincides with Second Friday on May 10. Led by Cathy Drew and Bob Pest, Ozark Gateway is planning an all day celebration integrating the two events. It will begin at 1:00 p.m. with a free lunch of burgers, hot dogs, beverages, and other treats in the Pocket Park, sponsored by Citizen’s Bank. WRD Entertainment will be broadcasting live from Main Street some of the day; Rob Grace will be the master of ceremonies. The Batesville Area Arts Council will be mounting a new exhibit. The library and Fellowship Bible Church at the Landers will also be involved with programs or events.


Local non-profits, charities, and musicians are invited to attend, distribute information, or have drawings for prizes. We are also asking the downtown businesses to stay open until 7:00 p.m. Simply Southern Music Hall will have their regular musical show at 7:00. Take some time off for fun and enjoy Second Friday downtown. See you there!
