If you want to learn more about Hernando and what’s happening , there’s now an app for that .
Live and now available for free through the Apple App Store and Google Play is a new mobile tourism app . Community Development Director Gia Matheny said two grants helped make the app happen .
One came from the Mississippi Hills National Heritage Area Alliance and was awarded to create a tourism tool for history , culture and city events that ......include educational opportunities about Hernando’s history , Matheny said . The other grant came from the Maddox Foundation to help offset the remaining costs of the app and encourage more visitors to come to Hernando .
“The app is a tool that can be utilized by visitors and residents to find information about upcoming community - wide events such as the historically themed Dickens of a Christmas , Hernando Farmers Market , Water Tower Chamber of Commerce events and others , ” Matheny said . “The app has a GPS feature that will help visitors navigate around the city and to specific activities within an event . It will be a good tool for residents to use to keep up with upcoming events . ”
Matheny said events not hosted by the city will require community partners , such as the Hernando Main Street Chamber of Commerce , DeSoto Arts Council , and others to provide the city with details of the events to keep it updated .
She added that there is a special link for arts and culture that allows users to learn about places to explore and users can then develop their own schedule of things to do when in Hernando .
