Greetings from the Pittsburg Camp County Chamber of Commerce
Your Chamber of Commerce and the City of Pittsburg have events planned for every weekend in April. It means that thousands of visitors will visit Pittsburg and Camp County over the next 30 days. What does this say for our community? Tourism dollars and economic development! Visitors will purchase gas, eat dinner at a local restaurant, stay in a local motel or bed and breakfast, and shop our local merchants. They will buy a bottle of water and pick up a few things at Brookshire’s. We’ll show them our Pittsburg hospitality, and they will want to come back for a weekend to discover all that makes our community unique. Please join us, and the many guests visiting Pittsburg and Camp County, as we celebrate our community throughout April.
