Country Stampede Could Mean Millions for Area Economy

More than 18 million dollars is expected to be poured into the Manhattan-area economy by the Country Stampede concert event this year. Karen Hibbard is director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau in Manhattan:

Hibbard says that after adding in the cost of lodging or staying at Tuttle Creek State Park, the overall impact on the Manhattan economy has been more than 229 million dollars since the inaugural Stampede in 1996. This year's Country Stampede begins tomorrow (THUR) and runs through Sunday, featuring concerts by Brad Paisley and Lady Antebellum.
