Streator, Ottawa tourism win state tourism awards

Streator and Ottawa tourism efforts were recognized late Monday at the Illinois Governor’s Conference on Travel and Tourism in Chicago.

The Streator Walldogs Festival was named the Best Festival for events less than $500,000, and Ottawa Tourism won two awards, including best social media.

“To win this and be recognized statewide by your peers in tourism, to have what we did with a small budget recognized by the state, this is a stellar award,” said Gavin Finefield, a Walldogs organizer, in a phone interview Monday night.

The Times will have more information on the awards in Wednesday’s paper.
