Bus ad promoting US city festival shows images from Europe

CONCORD, N.H. — A bus ad promoting a Concord, New Hampshire, arts festival takes a detour through Europe.

Huge photos on a Concord Coach bus that travels between Concord and Boston feature images of the Merrimack River and a local clock tower, both associated with New Hampshire's capital city.

But the Concord Monitor reports (http://bit.ly/2pVXe08) that photos of people on a Prague hillside and a painter from Venice, Italy, also are in the ad for the May 6 festival.

Still, Concord Coach president Ben Blunt says: "I think you can get your message across."

Concord Coach paid for the ad. A festival volunteer chose the photos from a stock photo service.

Last year, Rhode Island hired a new chief marketing officer after its embarrassing state tourism campaign included a video featuring a scene from Iceland.
