“Pop-Up Vacation” in Court Square May 7

The Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau is teaming up with the Downtown Memphis Commission to host residents, visitors and hospitality employees in a “Pop-Up Vacation” at Court Square May 7 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Visitors will be able to experience a min-vacation with a putting green from Mirimichi, a forge from the National Ornamental Metal Museum, an Elvis tribute artist, the presence of local sports mascots, cars from the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience, Yellow Cab and American Dream Safari, and the Peabody will fill the water fountain in the square with hundreds of rubber ducks.

The event, according to the CVB, “represents the travel community’s collective call to showcase the importance and impact of travel on jobs and economic growth in Memphis.” Travel supports more than 35,000 jobs in Memphis, according to CVB president and CEO Kevin Kane.
