History Lovers Friday at the Bedford Area Welcome Center
- This event has passed.
May 11, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join us at the Welcome Center as we celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week! Every destination has a story to tell about its unique offerings, and NTTW is a great opportunity to showcase some of what Bedford has to offer. On May 11, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., a representative from Poplar Forest will demo colonial games and talk about archeological objects, and a re-enactor with the National D-Day Memorial will be on-hand with artifacts and information on upcoming events. We’ll also have information about the Civil War Trail.
The Welcome Center/Dept of Tourism will also have a table with the chance to win a prize as well as learn about volunteer opportunities. We’ll also have a drawing for a chance to win free admission passes to the National D-Day Memorial!
This is free and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to bring a lunch and enjoy the outdoor picnic area behind the Welcome Center (there’s a great view of the Peaks!) Please stop by and see what’s going on in Bedford!
