There is something for everyone and it's designed for those who just enjoy birds to the more experienced birder. If you enjoy nature, or some aspect of it, then this event is for you.
From the Chamber Welcome!
Located on the Texas Gulf Coast, on the bay of Aransas, the towns of Rockport and Fulton offer a special charm. Since their earliest days, Rockport and Fulton have attracted visitors with their climate, their friendly people and always, their wonderful birds.
The Tourism Development Council of the Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce is pleased to help and assist the annual HummerBird Celebration Committee in making this event spectacular for all those who attend.
We give a warm welcome to all those interested in coming to the Texas Coast on Sept. 13-16, 2012. The celebration days are fast approaching and we feel the 2012 schedule of events is most fulfilling.
Each year the staff of the Chamber look forward to entertaining those who attend the HummerBird Celebration. It is a pleasure to try to accommodate each and everyone. It is truly remarkable to work behind the scenes as part of the team that coordinates an event which pleases so many people in a comfortable sort of way.
To our regular attendees and to anyone wishing to attend for the first time, you are warmly welcomed. Hope to see you here and happy birding until then. Call the Chamber office if we can assist you.
