Tourism and Life

Current Projects:

Cash Mobs: The tourism and life committee has hosted several successful cash mobs this year. Cash mobs bring many people together at a local business who have pledged to spend at least $25 at that business. This provides a boost for the business’ bottom line, as well as brings community members together for a fun time!

Goals:

Goal 2: Historic Pittsfield attracts tourists and residents to visit the vibrant retail and dining district as well as enjoy a variety of historic and cultural attractions and activities.
