The Tourism Bureau's final 2010 tradeshow will be the weeklong Branson Veteran's Celebration. This is always a fun show to work, visiting with our veterans, thanking them for their service. Many stop on their way through Pulaski County after the event and visit our center and museums. You can also show thanks to our veterans by attending the Waynesville-St Robert Chamber of Commerce Veterans Parade which is always held November 11th at 11am. This year the parade route will be in Waynesville.
The Visitors Center is now operating under winter hours. You may stop by Monday through Friday 8am-5pm to pick up information, maps, take a look at our souvenirs or just stop in for a piping hot coffee.

The Pulaski County Tourism Bureau board and staff would like to wish each of you a safe and wonderful holiday season.

Keeping in touch,
