Best of the Road competitors to attend Fouts Field fireworks show

Best%20of%20the%20Road%20graphic.jpg.jpgWe’ve got great music. Great food. Friendly people. A great university.

And we’ve got fans, too.

Online voting sponsored by Rand McNally and USA Today’s Best of the Road contest put Denton among the top six finalists for Most Fun Town in America in the publications’ annual promotion. More than 700 towns with a population less than 150,000 competed.

Categories included most fun, most friendly, most patriotic, most beautiful and best food. Denton had more votes than any other of all 700 cities, placing in the top six most fun, most friendly and best food, according to Kim Phillips of the Denton Convention and Visitors Bureau. 

The winner will be selected by Team Fresh Traveler, aka Patricia and Anna, who will be in Denton July 4-5 to enjoy holiday events, including the 40th annual free fireworks show held at Fouts Field and sponsored by Kiwanis on Independence Day.

Team Fresh Traveler is one of five teams traveling from Washington, D.C., to Seattle. Each team is blogging, tweeting, uploading video and posting photos of their adventures in hopes of earning a $10,000 prize. The winning town in each category and the winning team will be announced at the Annual Destination Marketing Association International Conference July 17 in Seattle.

The five winning towns will be featured on cable TV’s Travel Channel and in promotions for the 2013 Best of the Road contest.
