Hamilton Looks to Promote Tourism with Annual Township Calendar

Photo Contest Lets Residents Help Promote What Visitors ‘Should Not Miss’ Each Month in Hamilton


Is it the Fireworks and Concert around the Fourth of July? 

Or Hamilton’s Azalea Festival in May? 

What about the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in March? 

Mayor Kelly Yaede and Township officials want to know what special events, celebrations or places that both residents…and visitors ‘should not misseach month taking place in Hamilton.  

It is part of the Township’s annual Photo Contest for the upcoming 2017 Hamilton Township Municipal Government Calendar, which will have a new, unique twist.  This year, as part of Hamilton’s efforts to help capitalize on tourism, the annual calendar will look to highlight the special things that visitors should not miss when visiting the community.    

“We always hear that the best way a visitor can find out the best things to do in an area they travel to is to ‘ask a local.’  With this year’s calendar photo contest, we are using that same philosophy to help show visitors all that they can do in Hamilton Township, NJ,” says Mayor Kelly Yaede. With our great location, easy access to highways and our train station, along with three hotels to stay when you arrive, Hamilton has so much to offer visitors.  Whether it is Grounds For Sculpture, our annual community events, local historic sites, beautiful parks, delicious dining options or our retail shopping centers, there is so much for visitors to enjoy throughout the year in Hamilton.”

Township officials also plan to utilize some contest photographs on a new Tourism website they will be creating.

Additionally, Hamilton will provide display copies of the 2017 Township Calendar to hotels within the community to help promote local attractions to travelers.
