AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile will be recognized as Alabama's Attraction of the Year during the Governor's Annual Conference on Tourism in Auburn.

The state Tourism Department says the battleship park will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year.

The tourism conference is Saturday through Tuesday at the Hotel at Auburn University.

Organizers say the Gadsden Riverfest will be recognized as the Event of the Year. It is marking its 30th anniversary.

Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange will receive the Government Advocate award for his leadership in the redevelopment of downtown Montgomery and for preparing for the 50th anniversary of the Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights march in 2015.
