As a current resident of baltimore, I was really impressed with the events that have been going on the past 2 weeks. Me and my friends are always saying, " 'what are we gonna do?' 'man... this baltimore. THERES NOTHING BUT TROUBLE TO GET INTO!!' 'yea... i cant stand this place!!' "
During the past two weeks we've had the Dew Tour '07 stop in Baltimore, and just this past weekend the African American Festival. I was actually made aware of the publicity while watching FOX 45 news this morning. They mentioned how it was well put together and how much money it raised for the city. Is the money really going to the city and put to good use?..... thats a whole different thread (or not).
I wanted to know what are some events in your cities that bring revenue and beneficial awareness of the good things your city has to offer (and why you someone should live and work there)? Another point the news anchor made was that, there were no sporting events going on during the past 2 weeks, and Baltimore was still able to make money and bring out around 500K people to the city.
So, what do you do??
