Rally for Sundre Tourism

Thursday, July 26th 2012 07:00

Sundre's tourism industry took a big hit after an oil spill last month left thousands of barrels pouring into the Red Deer River.

Wildrose MP Blake Richards will be showing his support for the tourism industry in Sundre on Monday.

A rally is being held at the Sundre Museum to raise awareness about tourism in the area and the fact that the town has not been affected by last month's oil spill into the Red Deer River. 

Richards hopes the rally puts a spotlight on Sundre in a positive way so people will be encouraged to take advantage of tourism opportunities in the area.

The rally starts at noon on July 30th at the Sundre Museum.

A free hot dog lunch will be served and local dignitaries will be taking a river raft ride at 1:00.
