As the big event draws nearer and planning evolves from less talking to more doing we'll be ready for our fantastic crew of volunteers to get prepared for their respective duties. We're going to talk about what we have planned so far, what's confirmed, and the specifics of the various jobs involved.
This will be a casual gathering, BYOB if you prefer some libations but we may be on the go. We're still waiting to see if we can access the space for a walk through with volunteers on this day. If so we may either meet there, or just caravan over for a lookee-loo and return for discussion.
Thanks again for being such a great team! We can't imagine doing this without all of YOU!
Hello Articans! It’s that time of year when we come out of hibernation and start celebrating the creative spirit of St. Louis together!
11:00AM: Meet at Tower Grove Park with your teeny tiny totems. We'll meet near the intersection of Main Drive and South Drive at the East end of the park near Grand Ave. If you don't have a Totem, you can be your own Totem! Pick your favorite costume and join the fun! Bring your kids along on the parade, when we meet up at the Tick Tock Tavern, they will love a tasty lunch at Steve's Hot Dogs next door!
11:30AM: PARADE! We'll stroll South along South Grand to Wyoming, then cross the intersection to head back North to Magnolia where we will turn and head East towards Tock Tock a few blocks away.
12:00PM-4:00M: If you can't make it to the parade, the Tick Tock Tavern is offering Artica 20% of sales during this time. Please invite your friends and drink with us all afternoon to help raise funds for Artica 2018: MississipEpiphany! Join us in some good old fashioned ARTICA revelry!

If you have nothing, we have materials you will be fine. I will bring ropes, cardboard, tape, spray paint and some wheel bases that you can use. Bring what you have, and we will make it work.
