Christmas on Cumberland makes “Top 20″ of Southeast tourism events

 

With its annual expansion and continual improvements, Clarksville’s annual holiday light festival, Christmas on the Cumberland, is one of the best events the city has to offer. The festival draws thousands to its opening ceremonies each years, and thousands more who stroll the riverfront walkways to enjoy the lights.

The City of Clarksville received notification on Wednesday that Christmas on the Cumberland has been selected as one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events for the month of November 2008. The Southeast Tourism Society chooses the Top 20 events going on in the Southeast for each month of the year, and publishes this list of winners quarterly. The Top 20 Events publication is sent to over 800 newspapers, magazines, radio stations, TV stations, AAA publications and others.

Christmas on the Cumberland will celebrate its tenth season this November and December and is expected to attract over 35,000 visitors to the RiverWalk during that time period.
