ACCENTUATING THE POSITIVE…St. Louis Celebrating 250 Years IN 2014
From “grassroots to grand scale,” you can help mark St. Louis’ milestone by joining events throughout the year that range from small neighborhood gatherings to festivals in packed entertainment venues!
Volunteer organization stl250 serves as the master of ceremonies for the 2014 celebration, and invites the region’s citizens, businesses, and institutions to share their stories and commemoration plans! http://www.stl250.org/
Birthday Bash Weekend – February 14-16, 2014
Historians can’t agree on the actual date of the founding of St. Louis, so we thought we would make a weekend of it! Not even a St. Louis winter could stop this party.
Here’s what’s on tap:
The Biggest Birthday Bash
Feb. 14-17 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Missouri History Museum
A free, family-friendly event that celebrates 250 years of regional heritage at the Missouri History Museum. Come join thousands in taking part in interactive exhibits and activities, while soaking in live musical performances and sampling prime edibles from local food vendors.
