Grouphug St. Louis 2011 Was A Blast, 2012 Should Be Too

May 12, 2012 Events/Meetings, Featured No Comments

One of the funnest events I participated in last year was Grouphug St. Louis:

Same as last year: we are asking you and your friends to scour the city for your favorite people, places, and objects—ones that define our city and/or help to explain why you love St. Louis—and HUG these subjects for the camera. Get a friend to snap a photograph of you with your arms wrapped around your favorite St. Louis building, business, monument, person, etc. On May 26, all participants and friends are invited to attend the Grouphug party to view pics, imbibe, listen to music and express your love for St. Louis.

The creativity on display in the images and energy at the event was electrifying!

But the name is Grouphug — the organizers would like to see some group images:

We strongly encourage you to get with your neighbors and represent your neighborhood. Whether it’s Fox Park or Ferguson, the Hill or the Ville—we’d love to see you and your neighbors’ take on what represents your neighborhoods (involving hugs of course!).
