“June is a month where summer tourism really starts to heat up in our region, and we’re thrilled that so many events have chosen to capitalize on the facilities and resources that we have to offer here this month,” said Ron Sertz, Executive Director of the Erie Sports Commission. “These events represent the diversity that our region offers to sports events. Some are indoors, some are outdoors. Some competitors are pros, while others are amateurs, and represented athletes will be here from literally all over the world. I hope that our community will join the ESC in supporting these events and these visitors to create a great experience that will keep them coming back each year.”
