CVB staff will be among those celebrating the Grand Opening of the much anticipated Wonders of Wildlife beginning Sept. 20. The new attraction will open to the public on September 22.

“We’re beyond thrilled this world-class attraction will be opening its doors,” said Tracy Kimberlin, president/CEO of the CVB. "Bass Pro is already the number-one tourist attraction in the state, and with the opening of Wonders of Wildlife, it's just going to get that much bigger.”

The CVB will also provide media coverage of certain events during the Grand Opening through social media channels as well as some “sneak peeks” from inside the attraction.

Staff members also are assisting media from around the country who are visiting the city for the grand opening.
