JUNCTION CITY – Junction City’s Scandinavian Festival was recognized as one of the three top destination reasons that people come to Lane County at the recent Travel Lane County annual awards banquet, held June 13.
Sandwiched between the nominations of the long-running Asian Celebration and Vince Lanana’s Tracktown USA, JC’ fsestival came in behind the winner – Tracktown USA. Nonetheless, that put Junction City’s Scandinavian Festival in very elite company. In this reporter’s opinion, being number two is not bad at all.
Also nominated for the 2012 Partnership Award was the Oregon RV Alliance who came in behind the winner, Eugene’s Bike Friday, an internationally known bicycle manufacturer. ORVA’s Brad Waring said, “It is such an honor to be nominated. Just to be recognized by Travel Lane County gives a real boost to ORVA’s future.”
