Citywalk News for December

First of all, I want to offer a big thank you to the restaurants and patrons who participated in Dine Out on November 9th! All the figures aren’t in as of this writing, but through your support and generosity, over $2,550 was raised to benefit our award-winning Ferguson Farmers market.


The Holiday Season in Citywalk officially kicked off with the Northern Lights festival and lighting of the Christmas tree at Victorian Plaza, adding to the festive decorations on street lamps and businesses! The lighted decorations along Citywalk can be viewed and enjoyed from carriages on Thursday evening, December 8th. The carriage rides are offered free to Ferguson residents and employees of Ferguson businesses, courtesy of Citywalk, to show appreciation for your continued support of our businesses and events. Join us that evening at Plaza 501 for hot cocoa, toasty fire pits and a Christmas movie.


Another traditional event is the Ferguson Christmas Twilight House Tour, which benefits the Ferguson Caring League. On Sunday, December 4th, seven wonderfully decorated private residences will be open for viewing. This year, the variety of architectural styles include century-old Victorian and Italianate manses, classic Bungalow cottages, and Mid-Century Modern ranches. Tickets may be purchased in advance at Corner Coffeehouse, Paul’s Market, or City Hall. They may be purchased on tour day at Pearce Neikirk and Partners Realty, 427 South Florissant Road.


There are many more special holiday events at businesses, churches and schools along Citywalk and down neighboring side streets of which to take advantage. Get out, enjoy your community and show your support by shopping and dining at Ferguson’s many fine local shops and establishments! We at Citywalk, wish you a peaceful and joyful Holiday Season!

Citywalk News for November

On December 4th, prepare yourselves for touring. Comfortable clothes and walking shoes are the order for the day because you won’t want to miss the 2016 FERGUSON CHRISTMAS TWILIGHT HOUSE TOUR. The Ferguson Caring League is featuring seven beautiful homes on the tour this year. These private residences represent a variety of architectural styles and the halls are completely decked with boughs of holly. The tour runs from 3:00 until 7:00 pm, and weather permitting, is bike friendly. Tickets go on sale November 1st and can be purchased at Paul’s Market, Corner Coffee House or Ferguson City Hall. Tickets may also be purchased on December 4th at Pearce Neikirk and Partners Realtors, LLC at 427 South Florissant Road from 1:00 until 4:00 pm. All proceeds go to the Ferguson Caring League to conduct their good work in and around Ferguson. Many of Ferguson’s restaurants, cafes and shops will be open and offering tour specials as well. Get a group of friends together and get touring!

 

An introduction is in order for one of our newer businesses on CityWalk. Straw Hat Aquaponics, located at 258 So. Florissant Road (in the former Gaga’s for Gifts Shop) is the brain child of a group of excited and talented entrepreneurs, Tom Bortz, Alex Limpert, Tim Hydar, J.P. Knoblach, Rick Evers and Dan Bortz, Tom’s brother. They all have a common denominator which is the passion for growing, and best of all, eating, fresh vegetables. Straw Hat is a farm without tractors and combines. The science is as cutting edge as what you will find in the Silicon Valley (well almost). While the operation is focused on wholesale growth and sales of greens and lettuces for restaurants and retailing to the Ferguson Farmers Market, a retail outlet may be coming soon. Visit them on facebook or at strawhataquaponics.com. I will be looking for their IPO.

 

Well, there you have it; another month enjoying the quality of life found in Bedrod Falls . . . or as we all know it . . . FERG!

Citywalk News for October

September was a busy month! Our Citywalk Concert Series at Plaza 501 featured three local bands for the last concert of the season, delicious late summer produce was available at the Farmers Market, and the month ended at Victorian Plaza rocking to the diverse music of six different bands.

 

We also said goodbye to Toni Roper, who has been the public “face” for Citywalk events and promotions the past three years. We will miss her huge smile and seemingly unending energy! We wish her well in her new position at the family business, Roper’s Ribs.

 

Some new businesses opened in September on Citywalk. One of those is the Community Birth and Wellness Center at #8 Church Street in the historic Bindbeutel Building. They are staffed with certified nurse midwives and offer complete prenatal, birth and postpartum care, as well as breastfeeding support.

 

October will bring some good reasons to get out and enjoy the (hopefully) nice Fall weather on the Citywalk. Shepherding Images Gallery has the photography of Henry Chaney, entitled The Awakening, on exhibit until October 8th. FYI has some of the painted boards on display until October 30th as part of the multi-venue Outside In/Paint for Peace exhibit and they will also have a Slam arts event for teens on Friday, October 7th. Local authors, including Ferguson resident Braxton DeGarmo and Immanuel Church’s pastor Jimmy Watson will be at Corners Frameshop & Gallery also on Friday evening, October 7th. Weekend nights usually brings live music to be heard at various restaurants and bars on the walk, and October is the last month to shop at the award-winning outdoor Ferguson Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.

 

Next month we’ll have wonderful November events to talk about, but it is not too early to plan your float for the Northern Lights parade! This year’s theme is Favorite Holiday Movies. Watch this paper for details and entry applications. Till next month, see you on the walk!
