Gear up for the event of the year

Phil Banker

My dear friend and colleague from the Victoria Advocate, Aprill Brandon, recently wrote a column for Digboston.com about the scourge of tourists. As a newly-minted Bostonian, she gets to deal with the swarms of yankee sightseers who swamp her fair city from May to August.

Aprill dreads the coming months, knowing she’ll have to share the jewel of the northeast with the unwashed hordes coming in to block sidewalks while taking photos of the city’s historic landmarks.

Meanwhile, here in Ennis, we’re gearing up for the biggest tourist event of the year. While I respect Aprill’s opinion, I’ve got to take the opposite tack.

Tourists? Come on in.
