Be a tourist in your own hometown June 14-15

A series of free events, activities and special offers await during Be A HomeTown Tourist Weekend in Ladysmith.

Take the chance to rediscover the joys of your own backyard during Be A HomeTown Tourist Weekend June 14-15.

Offering a series of free events and attractions, activities and special offers from local businesses, Be A HomeTown Tourist Weekend offers an opportunity for residents and visitors to discover Ladysmith, Cassidy and Cedar.

During the weekend, there will be harbour boat tours, historic downtown walks, farm tours, two-for-one specials for kayaking, golfing and swimming, and special menus prepared by local restaurants.

Cindy Damphousse, who spearheaded the campaign four years ago, says she is excited by the response to Be A HomeTown Tourist Weekend.

“We often miss the treasures that are right in our backyard,” she said in a press release. “This is a way for us to remember what an amazing place we live in.”

Damphousse says the campaign was modeled after other programs that have been successful in many communities.

“Amazing things happen in small places,” she noted.
