For CVB directors, fall is the best time of the year. Nice weather, fall festivals, sporting events and pumpkin patches are just a few of the reasons people are more likely to travel and spend a little money.
We wrapped up our fifth season of movies in the park at the McPherson Scottish Festival. Movie fans won't have to wait until next summer. McPherson Main Street and the McPherson Chamber will host four free holiday movies at the McPherson Opera House.
Speaking of the Scottish Festival, the weather gods were kind and we had beautiful weather. This was the festival's 20th year and many of the volunteers who started the festival are still actively involved. The festival is always looking for new volunteers to help carry on the tradition. If you're interested, contact my office or go to the contacts page of the festival's web site at macfestival.org.
The CVB hosted the Saturday night concert and buffet for the Scottish Festival at a new location this year. The new McPherson Museum was the perfect venue with an easily accessible catering kitchen, meeting area and the concert for 100+ people worked well in the special exhibits area. If you're looking for a place to hold your next meeting, reunion, wedding reception or convention, check out the museum at mcphersonmuseum.com.
We’re getting ready for the upcoming holiday season. The annual coloring contest for kids 12 and under will start in late October so look for those coloring sheets to come home with the kids from school. We’ll also have coloring sheets available at the office beginning Oct. 24 at Trick or Treat Down Main Street.
