For the past several years, members of the Mansfeild/Richland County Convention & Visitors Bureau have offered Shawshank themed souvenirs to visitors and fans coming to see the 14 filming sites from The Shawshank Redemption movie. Souvenirs have ranged from Prison candy bars, Reformatory Red wine, a Shawshank Sundae, Prison Break Sodas, lodging packages and more. This has been a popular feature of The Shawshank Trail as it helps bring visitors into businesses offering items from their favorite movie.
We are also reaching out to our members to participate in offering a themed souvenir for Haunted Mansfield. Haunted Mansfield is a tourism product geared towards paranormal investigators coming to the area for ghost hunts or ghost walks at the six Haunted locations; Reformatory, Bissman Building, Renaissance Theatre, Mansfield Fire Museum, Malabar Farm State Park and Brownella Cottage.
We will list your unique souvenirs on the appropriate two web sites and Shawshank souvenirs will additionally be listed in the 2016 Shawshank Trail brochure.
If you would like to offer a Shawshank or Haunted themed souvenir, simply contact Jodie Snavely. There is no cost. Deadline is October 1. Contact Jodie at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-525-1300 ext. 32.
