All those Labor Day travelers put an exclamation mark on the summer tourism season for Central Oregon. The Executive Director of the Central Oregon Visitors Association says even with fires burning nearby, visitor numbers looked good for the three day weekend. Alana Audette says this bucks a national trend of fewer Labor Day travelers this year. She believes a short summer is part of the reason for the big Labor Day numbers here: "Because a lot of our tourists are coming from within a drive market and our summer season started so late; and so we're finding that a lot of people postponed their early summer travel just to take that one last trip over Labor Day weekend and thankfully Central Oregon is one of the destinations that they are choosing to come to, and it's going to bode very well for us.” Overall, those in the local lodging industry project that they are going to be between 4% and 10% ahead of last Labor Day weekend.
