Creve Coeur Days Organizers Want Your Input For 2013

The annual carnival already has a location and a date for next year. Now, organizers want your feedback.

After the "Will We Have It and Where Will We Have It" drama of 2012, it appears the annual Creve Coeur Days event is on solid footing in 2013.

Organizers have already announced that next year's version will again be held at De Smet Jesuit, June 13-June 16. The non-profit organization that oversees the four day carnival now wants to see what else people want to include. Some of the ideas that have been tossed around include a pet show, a Creve Coeur Days Queen Contest, or a Taste of Creve Coeur Days featuring local restaurants.

“We are looking for other ideas as well,” said Steve Tockman, President of Creve Coeur Days, Inc. in a news release. “We are open to any suggestions. The only limiting factors are that it can’t cost a lot to put on since we are a charitable organization with a very limited budget, and it must be able to be done with a small number of volunteers, and we are looking for more volunteers.”

Organizers will be watching for comments posted on this story for feedback. Suggestions can also be made at the Creve Coeur Days website.

Musical acts. Add them. Think of county fairs. They attract people and lots of revenue. Book them for the gym, not the football field, for gate revenue. You've got a baseball field as well at DeSmet. Use it to hold a Creve Coeur Days softball tournament. Think of something creative for the football field - a pageant with a stage? Lots of avaiable space at DeSmet to use to create revenue-generating events - and traffic.

BBQ contest is an excellent idea! A big draw right now at the American Royal in KC.

I agree with the request for live music. Some name brand local acts would bring out the people. Of course, those bands want to be paid...
