Christmas Lights!

As a child, my family drove into London just to see the city all lit up with Christmas lights and other seasonal displays. St. Louis needs to do the same, with seasonal entertainers, lit up streets and a seasonal coloring of the Arch!

The Wilt/Bloom Initiative : Garden Project

The Wilt/Bloom Initiative is a non-governmental organization which concerns itself with transforming vacant spaces into usable public spaces that serve the greater good. The projects under this title will mainly involve urban agriculture, vertical farming, and community gardening, but may also include hydroponic and aquaponic projects. We are interested, not only in informing the public about how to do these things, but with helping them hands on.

Beautify St. Louis with Neighborhood Pride and Other Art

This idea is inspired by Atlanta's "Living Walls, the City Speaks" organization, and the recent "Shaw" painting on the NE corner of Tower Grove Ave and Shaw (see 1st image). See Living Walls, the City Speaks Facebook Page or Google Image search for example of the creative use of their walls. https://www.facebook.com/LivingWallsATL/photos_stream http://www.google.com/search?q=Living+Walls,+the+City+Speaks&hl=en&client=safari&tbo=d&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=x-ukUNmFGej7ygGw_YDoBA&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAA&biw=1148&bih=582

"St. Louis, the show me off city in the show me state"

The idea would allow people to display and show their pride in our city. The campaign can be tailored to each individual attraction. Throughout the city, county and would allow buttons, pins or bumper stickers to be made showing off that pride. The zoo, the arch, Ted Drewes and the button would be reflective of that pride. I'm a St. Louis zoo show off!! ( If you knew the Zoo, you'd show off too!) Ted Drewes Show off (we eat this up) The Magic House Show off (because we're rated better attraction than Disneyworld and Disneyland) I'm a Cardinal show off (Because we're the best fans in baseball) What we want at the end of your visit is to say "I had fun and a great time!" but most importantly for those of us who live here, we want to hear "I want to come back again, I didn't get to see it all. That is our goal and that is our wish for you! So please come to St. Louis and let us show off for YOU! every major attraction, place to visit restaurant could take davantage of this concept and easily adapt it to their location. The spots can be as short or as long as you rerquire to get across your message or reason for showing off. This campaign is a marketing dream come maker. "St. Louis, Missouri - the show me off city in the show me state!" YOu can involve celebraties to just you very day citizen and let them brag about the city. Say as the mayor is bragging about St. Louis he is walking and as he brags each attraction, restaurant, each attribute appears in the background while he walks. Simple as "We can even brag about having the best tasting water in the coutry in St. Louis. There is not an attraction or place of interest that you cannot incorporate into this campaign and as the city grows or new attractions arise you can simply roll them into the campaign. For example ( I'm an Arch show off - I'm a Botantical Garden Show off - I'm a Zoo show off - "Ask me what I have to show off about!" - The advertising premiums used is endless and could be sold by each particular attraction to help fund their involvement in the campaign.
