Orange County Government, The City of Orlando, and Visit Orlando have announced the return of #407Day this Thursday, April 7, 2022, for residents to celebrate their hometown pride and support local area businesses.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our community, and when we come together to support each other, we all thrive,” said Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings. “We must continue to celebrate the local businesses that make our region a special place to live. I encourage all residents to join me on April 7 and visit your favorite local business or restaurant. Together, we can make a difference by supporting our neighbors.”
This special campaign, inspired by the destination’s longtime area code, encourages residents to support their favorite restaurants, bars, shops, boutiques, services and other locally owned businesses by sharing posts and photos on their social media channels using the hashtag #407Day.
“I am proud to be a resident of our vibrant, inclusive community and always enjoy sharing what I love about Orlando. #407Day gives us all the opportunity to showcase our hometown pride and the small businesses that make our community such a special place,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.
All three entities have partnered with leading local food blog Tasty Chomps for a #407Day social media giveaway.
