I Am Denton video contest has been going strong with submissions from both the general public and DISD students. Voting for the People’s Choice Award ended April 30th, and the winning general public and student videos will be announced at this red carpet affair. The CVB believes that the best way to show people what Denton is all about is through the characters of this town who embody the spirit of Denton the most.

Texas Travel and Tourism Week celebrations will continue through Friday May 10, as the Denton CVB joins neighboring communities at the Texas Travel Information Center (TTIC) in Gainesville. Visitors traveling to Texas from Oklahoma and all points north will be greeted in Gainesville with a little more than just Texas charm.  To really entice visitors to discover Denton, the CVB and DentonRadio.com have partnered up to provide the event with Denton local music. Denton is known for its outstanding music scene, and no one highlights it better than DentonRadio.com, providing a source to listen to all-Denton music for free on its online radio station. DentonRadio.com has a variety of local singer-songwriters and bands on their website, and at the event in Gainesville, they will have four musical talents on the lineup: Caleb CoonrodEllee MorrisEllie Meyer, and (caruvana).

Here’s video telling the story of the importance of the travel industry to the Texas economy. Happy Texas Travel and Tourism Week, y’all!
