Sen. Max Baucus announced yesterday a new partnership between Travelocity and Montana communities to promote tourism in the state. According to Baucus:
Travelocity also announced sponsorships of several festivals around the state. This summer, they again sponsored the folk festival in Butte as well as the “What the Hay” festival in Utica. And over the next year they will partner with a number of events — including the Crow Agency Crow Fair, the Missoula Western Fair & Rodeo, Butte’s Irish Festival, the Magic City Blues Festival, and the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale.
Somehow, this announcement included the Travelocity gnome — you know, the company's mascot in all those commercials — visiting the Mo Club in downtown Missoula.
