My Waterloo Days named Iowa must see event

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) – My Waterloo Days is one of just 25 destinations named a 2010 Iowa "Must See Event" and a "Silver Ticket Cash Stop" by the Iowa Lottery and the Iowa Tourism Office.

"We're excited to be chosen by Iowa Tourism and the Lottery," said Jay Stoddard, Director of My Waterloo Days. "We know the advertising power of the Lottery, along with promotional efforts of the Tourism office, will bring many more Iowans to see all the hard work our group has done to market our area."

In addition, My Waterloo Days and every other "Silver Ticket Cash Stop" will give visitors the chance to win cash totaling $1,000, just by entering a non-winning Iowa Lottery "Silver Ticket" instant-scratch ticket at My Waterloo Days. The Silver Ticket game celebrates the Iowa Lottery's 25th anniversary and gives players the chance to win up to $25,000 instantly.

"Our goal is to partner with 25 great events in Iowa and give people a bonus reason to attend with the $1,000 "Silver Ticket Cash Stop" contest," explains Nancy Landess, Manager of the Iowa Tourism Office.

My Waterloo Days 2010, "Expo Excitement" will again include longtime community favorites such as: People in the Park, downtown parade, dragon boat races, 5K Run, local and national musical acts, carnival midway, and the Family & Kids Activity area. Festival goers will also have the opportunity to indulge in the many different cuisines that will be offered by our food and beverage vendors.

As the committee continues to make progress and finalize plans for the 2010 festival, additional information such as entertainment and location specifics, will be released to keep the community well informed of what to expect in 2010. Information on the 2010 festival can be found at www.mywaterloodays.org, or by becoming a fan on Facebook.
