OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Oxford tourism-related taxes hit an all-time high in April.

Figures presented at Wednesday's Oxford Tourism Council meeting showed the hotel and motel tax for April 2012 climbed 27 percent compared to the month of April in 2011 with $22,838 in taxes collected.

The Oxford Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/PpLddc ) that April tends to be one of the community's biggest months for tourism in the spring due to two local events: the annual Grove Bowl and the Double Decker Arts Festival. Both draw thousands of visitors to Oxford and the University of Mississippi.
