LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Passengers who touched down at Clinton National Airport were treated to some southern hospitality today.
It’s not a school pep rally but more of a celebration.
This week is National Travel and Tourism Week.
A band from Mabelvale Elementary greeted guests who were then given free Loblolly ice cream.
The airport even set up a petting zoo with its more than two dozen service dogs.
“Simply telling visitors thank you for coming. They make a tremendous economic impact in Arkansas’s capital city every year,” says Gretchen Hall.
Arkansas tourism accounts for an estimated $650 million in state and local tax revenue.
