Yakima Launches Series of Pamphlets Showcasing Downtown

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The city of Yakima wants to make it easier for tourists and locals to know what's going on every day.

They recently launched a series of pamphlets showcasing the entertainment, historical places, and businesses you can find in downtown Yakima.

The project is entirely paid for by downtown businesses.

Economic Development Manager Sean Hawkins says the pamphlets were a top priority.

"We had nothing in the past to give a traveler that might be popping in and says 'Hey, what can I do? What's going on here?' and the travelers want that type of information, but locals want that type of information as well," Hawkins said.

They've also passed out window stickers to downtown businesses that you can scan with your phone to instantly check out any new events.

The city has also updated the downtown Yakima website with all the new information. You can visit that here.
