Photo Contest: Ride Metro, Try to Win LouFest Tickets
The LouFest Music Festival will take place Sept. 6 to Sept. 7 in Forest Park. To encourage you to think about taking public transit to the festival, Metro is teaming up with LouFest organizers to sponsor a photo contest where you could win tickets to the annual music event.
Here’s what you need to do to enter the contest:
- Follow @STLMetro on Instagram.
- Take a photo of yourself riding MetroBus, MetroLink or Metro Call-A-Ride.
- Tag your photo using the hashtag #Metro2LouFest
- Post your photo on Instagram (make sure your profile is public).
To enter, photos must be posted to Instagram anytime from Aug. 13 through Aug. 24. Photos tagged correctly as outlined above on Instagram will be posted on our Facebook page for voting starting Aug. 25. The photo with the most votes on Facebook (“likes”) will win two 2-day g/a tickets to LouFest 2014. The voting period will run from Aug. 25 to Sept. 1 and and the winner will be announced Sept. 2.
You may only submit one photo and you need to complete all four steps to be entered in the contest. Bi-State Development Agency employees are not eligible to participate.
Concert goers can take MetroBus or MetroLink to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and then catch the #3 Forest Park Trolley to LouFest. If you show your LouFest ticket when you board the trolley, you will ride for free; however, you must have a valid ticket or pass to ride MetroLink or MetroBus. After 5 p.m., a special LouFest shuttle will operate between the Forest Park-DeBalievere MetroLink Station and LouFest.
Good luck and have fun!
