First Night® in Grand Center
Share Your Theme Ideas for First Night in Grand Center 2015!
In celebration of the 250th Birthday of the City of St. Louis, we are prepping for a First Night to remember! To honor and celebrate our heritage, First Night in Grand Center 2015 to be held December 31, 2014 will showcase St. Louis artists and performers. Submit your ideas for the perfect theme for First Night in Grand Center 2015 that celebrates St. Louis arts, history and culture. The person who submits the winning entry will receive a First Night VIP package.
Entries begin Wednesday, March 5, 2014 through Friday, March 14, 2014, and can be submitted by emailing email@example.com. Entries should include a brief explanation of the theme, no more than 200 words, and why it would be the best choice. After the March 14 deadline, the First Night events team will narrow down the field to five choices, and the public will have the chance to vote for their favorite on Grand Center’s Facebook page between March 18 – March 25. The final selection will be announced the first week of April.
