ALASKA COMES ALIVE WITH VIVID IMAGERY AT THE HILTON GRAND RAPIDS AIRPORT AT 11:00AM ON FEBRUARY 4, 2012
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (January 4, 2012) – Witte Travel & Tours will host ON STAGE ALASKA, a free multi-media Alaska travel presentation created to provide a glimpse of the history, scenic grandeur, wildlife and friendliness of the people to those planning an Alaska vacation.
The program, sponsored by Witte Travel & Holland America Line and produced by Holland America Line, features their Alaska CruiseTour destination film and live performance of an entertaining duo who have extensive travel experience in Alaska and the Yukon. The entertainers also work in the Great Land; one as a river guide on the Nenana River in Denali and one performs at Cabin Nite Dinner Theatre in Denali National Park. They are honored to serve as ambassadors for Alaska and look forward to sharing their passion, experience, and recommendations for a great vacation in the Great Land.
The show is open to the public and will take place at the Hilton Grand Rapids Airport, 4747 28th Street S.E. (Free parking) on February 4, at 11:00am.
Alaska, with its popular travel season beginning in May and ending in mid-September, is one of the best summer travel destinations to see by both land and sea. Travelers plan early, and so there’s no better way to get started on planning than to attend this show.
In addition, ON STAGE ALASKA provides information on 2012 Holland America cruise and cruisetour itineraries to Alaska and the Yukon.
Admission is FREE however; seats must be reserved by January 26. For information or reservations, call Witte Travel at 616-942-5112 or 800 GO WITTE
