ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 20, 2016 - Bush II Infield at Ballpark Village was filled with baseball fans, both Cardinals and Cubs, during the 'Be a Tourist in Your Own Town,' Wednesday, April 20.

This year, the St. Louis Civic Pride Foundation is inviting St. Louisans in grades three through 12 to participate in the 2016 Ultimate Tourist Contest, where they can win a $500 cash prize for visiting and writing about their area tourism experiences this summer.

Participants must visit at least three St. Louis area attractions then write about their journeys through an essay (500 words or less) or by creating a brief video.

Each entry will be judged on its own merits with the winners chosen by a selection committee comprised of St. Louis Civic Pride Foundation board members. The winning entries will be featured in Explore St. Louis' 2017 Official Visitors Guide and posted on explorestlouis.com for a full year.

The Ultimate Tourist Contest is open to students, ages 8 to 18 who will be entering grades three through 12 for the 2016-17 school year. Entries will be accepted from April 20 through September 5, 2016. Limit one entry per student.

During the 'Be A Tourist in Your Own Town', Fair St. Louis Foundation officially announced the full entertainment lineup for Fair Saint Louis 2016.

Cardinals Celebrate 10th Anniversary in Busch Stadium
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The Opening Day for 2016 was particularly special as the Cardinals celebrated the 10th anniversary in Busch Stadium and the 2006 World Championship squad.

Located in the heart of the downtown business district, the facility features classic arched openings similar the nearby Cupples Station warehouses, west of the site. The stadium features a creative use of old and new materials, from red brick and concrete to exposed steel and glass.

The majority of spectators have dramatic views of the Gateway Arch and the downtown St. Louis skyline. The ballpark has expanded bleacher sections, a state-of-the-art video board and entertainment system.

The facility has increased access for fans with disabilities, new escalators and more elevators. Disabled drop-off locations are: Gate 2, at Poplar and Eighth Streets; Gate 4 (Plaza of Champions), at Clark and Eighth Streets; and, Gate 6 on Broadway.

A main-level concourse circles the entire ballpark, providing a 360 degree view of the playing field. Home plate is located in the southwest corner of the site. The stadium features lowered seating and scoreboard heights in center field. A public plaza provides a perfect gathering spot for fans before and after games.

Ballpark Village will again be the place to be before, during and after the game. Since opening in March of 2014, Ballpark Village has hosted more than 5 million visitors of all ages from across the country and brought hundreds of great events to downtown.

Ballpark Village entered its second year in 2015 with the opening of the new Crown Room second-floor lounge in Budweiser Brew House, the addition of two 15-foot television screens in Fox Sports Midwest Live!, a two-sided permanent outdoor stage next to the Busch II infield and greatly improved sightlines into left center field in Busch Stadium.
