Tourist Attraction Will Not Happen This Year

Selma's other major tourist attraction has been cancelled this year...  High gas prices...especially for folks to travel extremely long distances - and a decline in the number of civil war re-enactors.

 Lauri S. Cothran is with the Center for Commerce.  She says: There are just a lot of contributing factors. The kiwanias club sponsored this event for so many years. And when it was handed off to the 'battle of selma authority', it fell into the hands of a smaller group and a lot of other organizations stepped up to help."

Organizers say they hope to bring the event back next year.
