Sunday, May 28, 2017 @ 9:28 AM

Prince George, B.C. – National Tourism Week in Canada runs today through Saturday, June 3rd and Tourism Prince George has a pair of events lined up to mark the occasion.

The first is an Ambassador Fair which will take place on Thursday, June 1st at the Coast Inn of the North.  It offers hospitality staff, event volunteers and interested residents a chance to refresh their community knowledge for the coming tourist season.  Several interactive exhibitor booths will be set up and there will be entertainment and a presentation from Parks Canada.  There is also a tour option, with a shuttle leaving the Coast Inn at 11 am for a visit to the Railway and Forestry Museum.

The Ambassador Fair runs from 10 am to 4 pm Thursday.

The other event is an Open House at the Prince George Visitor Centre, 1300 First Avenue, from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm on Friday.  Everyone in the community is invited to the open house and a free barbecue to celebrate the tourism industry in Prince George as well as National Tourism Week.

That event also includes a tour option with a shuttle leaving the Visitor Centre at 12 noon for a trip to Goodsir Nature Park, a botanical garden gem on Old Summit Lake Road.

Registration for all activities can be found at www.tourismpg.com/hellopg


PG Tourist Center on 1st??? Visible for all people going North or West, not! Another dumb idea that must have been passed by somebody sitting on their throne somewhere in Victoria. Move it back up to 16 and 97 where it belongs in the 1st place be t to all the businesses like the casino. Have you seen how many rigs there are in their holiday trailers, motor homes, etc? Not to mention the Walmart parking lot Hwy. 16 west. What a brainless move! Williams Lake beats the heck out of our Mickey Mouse operation, an embarrassment! My own opinion of course.

    The decision to locate on 1st Avenue was a local decision, made after Initiative’s Prince George leased the building. The City was leasing the property at 16 and 97 and had to move.
