Video promotes city tourism
By SUE WATSON
Anne Palmer, with Palmtree Studios in Tupelo, was in Holly Springs recently taking video of tourist sites for the Mississippi Hills National Heritage Area Alliance.
LaKisha Mitchell Buffington, office manager for the Holly Springs Tourism Bureau, served as a model. The setup was at the Hugh Craft Slave Quarters.
Stephanie McKinney, executive director of the Holly Springs Tourism Bureau and treasurer of the Hills Heritage Alliance, said the video is made possible thanks to a grant from the Mississippi Development Authority’s Tourism Division.
The Alliance applied for funds to develop a regional video on the Hills but will also create individual videos for each community who is a member of the Alliance.
The video can be viewed, upon being made available, at www.mississippihills.org and at www.visithollysprings.com once completed.
Holly Springs already has a number of attractions featured on the Mississippi Hills website.
“Being a member of the Alliance benefits small communities like Holly Springs greatly by giving us access to projects such as this,” McKinney said. “The group also has placed advertising in publications such as ‘Better Homes and Gardens,’ ‘Southern Living,’ and others we cannot afford on our own.
“Holly Springs is also prominently featured there and on their website. They are also looking into getting state-funded, trail-blazing signs for each community.”
Further contact with the tourism office is possible by calling 662-252-2515 or 1-888-687-4765. Additional information about Holly Springs Tourism can be found on Facebook or Twitter.
