ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – It’s great that groups want to host their event in downtown St. Louis, but Ann Chance, special events coordinator for the city, says it’s grown from a few to several dozen.
“(We’re) limiting new runs and walks downtown. If a new run comes in than they go to the park or a park and have them talk to the parks department, which they do, and a lot of them now are in Forest Park,” Chance says.
Chance says events are fine because they’re just in one area. They’ve got just the right number of parades, but the run and walks have become too plentiful. She says all the blocking of roads was getting to be an issue, so they’re clamping down.
