This February, St. Louis will turn 250 years old. Volunteer organization stl250 is dedicated to making sure that the city's birthday is not only celebrated, it is never forgotten.
stl250 has organized events throughout 2014. The group boasts its ability to provide "grassroots to grand scale" celebrations and provide opportunities for everyone to get involved.
stl250 recently announced the winners of its "Cakeway to the West," a contest which allowed voters to decide where they should place 50 fiberglass birthday cakes around St. Louis. The fifty winners include the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, Bellefontaine Cemetery, Grant's Farm, Ted Drewes, Luvy Duvy's, Crown Candy, The Endangered Wolf Center, The Muny, And the Missouri Botanical Garden, just to name a few.
No doubt, the greatest extravaganza of the year will be the "Biggest Birthday Bash Weekend." The weekend begins with the "Burnin' Love" kick-off party and ends with "The Biggest Birthday Ball."
Taking place in Forest Park February 14 - 16, these events are expected bring tens of thousands of people to sample food from local venders, dance to live musical performances, and watch fireworks.
