Local tourism agency urges residents to shop local this season

BOWLING GREEN Ky.- A Bowling Green organization is getting in the Christmas spirit by giving the gift of local shopping.

The Bowling Green Area Convention and Visitors Bureau has put together a basket full of Bowling Green goods. It includes items from Barbara Stewart Interiors, Candle Makers on the Square and the Historic Railpark and Train Museum just to name a few.

To be entered to win this basket, just like the Bureau’s Facebook post and comment what you want for Christmas. The goal of this initiative is to emphasize the impact of shopping local and keeping dollars in this community.

The drawing for this basket will be Dec. 1. For the lucky winner, the prize will be available for pickup at 352 Three Springs Road.
