HURRICANE — After its successful October run with participation numbers rivaling the Olympics, the Huntsman World Senior Games is getting its due recognition.

The Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce is honoring the Huntsman World Senior Games as Hurricane Valley’s November 2018 “Business of the Month.”

The Huntsman World Senior Games is the largest annual athletic event in Southern Utah, generating millions of dollars of revenue and giving a growing number of seniors the opportunity to compete in sporting events on a world stage.

“The HVCC and its members are grateful to the entire Senior Games staff for the work they do to provide a life-changing experience not only to world participants and visitors, but to the hundreds of volunteers who look forward year after year to introducing Senior Games guests to this beautiful area and Southern Utah hospitality,” the chamber said in a press release.

The “Business of the Month” award is granted to chamber businesses who have contributed extensive time, energy and resources to the Hurricane Valley area and Southern Utah region.

The chamber will pay tribute to the Huntsman World Senior Games at its Wednesday luncheon meeting. Guest speakers for the luncheon will be Bryce King, Hurricane Recreation Department director, and Darin Larsen, Hurricane City councilman and vice president of the State Bank of Southern Utah Hurricane Branch.

    I’m just glad the damn thing is over and we can have our roads back for a few months until the Parade of homes starts

    Face it, if we don’t recognize we live in an area fueled by tourism we’re just kidding ourselves. My wife and I participated in the Games and felt traffic was more than tolerable. The opening ceremonies, free health screenings, dinner dance and awards banquet were all wonderful. We met new friends, renewed old friendships and will look forward to next years Games. Our sincere thanks to the Huntsman family and all the people & volunteers that make this event happen!
