The City of La Feria participated in the Texas Travel and Tourism Week celebration and set up a booth during the May 14, 2010 event at the Texas Travel Information Center in Harlingen. Travel and Tourism week, May 8-16, shines a spotlight on the economic and employment impact created in South Texas from spending by leisure and business travelers. The jobs of local hospitality workforce – and millions of dollars in local/state tax base – are supported by the vital economic activity generated by travel and tourism. Other entities in the Valley participated as well to make this a very successful event. See pictures.
