At the last quarterly membership meeting, FSBD (Citywalk) decided that our Fourth of July parade float should honor our own Hometown Heroes – the police, firefighters, and EMTs that are headquartered right here in the heart of Citywalk.
Linda Hensiek of Benton’s for Hair and Robin Shively of Corners Frameshop & Gallery came up with the design featuring a police car, firetruck & ambulance. There were also puppets representing a police officer, a fireman, & an EMT. Mike Palmer of Monterey’s Cigar Lounge provided the trailer, while Bob McCarty of Painted Effects, Rob Chabot of Mobile Eyecare Solutions and Toni Roper from the City of Ferguson helped Linda & Robin decorate the float. On the 4th, Tom Hensiek drove while Robin, Linda and Toni were joined by Chris & Maureen Zeugin of Edward Jones. They all had a fun time handing out candy & using the puppets to give “high-fives” to the children along the parade route. The float won Second Place for Best Theme! If you missed the parade, the vehicles & puppets from our float (and our trophy!) are currently on display in the windows at Corners.
The Ferguson CityWalk Concert Series is nearing the end of another successful season. Smooth jazz, R&B, blues, Latin, Motown, Pop, Disco, & Rock have all played underneath the stars at Plaza at 501. There are two more shows left. Things will be jazzy on September 11, 2015, with the Dave Black Group. Then enjoy StreetFest later in the month. The concert series will resume for the final show on October 9, 2015. This will be something new; Blend, an a cappella quartet will bring fun loving music of the 50s & 60s. Pack a lawn chair in your car and make plans to join us. Or come early and grab a picnic table. Two concession stands are available on site.
We have two months remaining in our Monday food truck series. The next Food Truck Monday will be September 20, 2015. With one month remaining, September is the perfect time to make another visit. Stop by with friends for lunch. Meals can be picked up to go, or enjoy lunch on the plaza.
The Farmer’s Market is open each Saturday morning; we’d love to see you there. The Farmer’s Market is committed to working with local vendors to bring you fresh home grown foods. Stop by and check out new vendors and the selections of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables.
