250/250

 This year is St. Louis' 250 birthday. Our history museum has a exhibition called 250/250. 50 people, 50 places, 50 objects, 50 moments, 50 images of St Louis. Lindbergh's flight suit used when he flew non stop to Paris
 Stan Musial, local sports hero, played for the St Louis Cardinals. He played the harmonica and was beloved by the people of St. Louis
 Chuck Berry's "Black Widow" guitar. He was born in St. Louis and still performs here occasionally
My first birthday cake sighting. There are 250 four foot fiberglass birthday cake placed all over the area in historically or interesting places. I hope to photograph as many as I can this year. The cakes are decorated by local artists.

Thank you from the City of St. Louis, Isabelle. The city is going all out this spring and summer with events. I hope to attend some of them.
