At Lambert-St. Louis Int’l Airport: candy & Chuck Berry

This is Customer Appreciation Week at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL) and there’s a full schedule of fun underway, including live music, giveaways, special appearances in the terminals and “random surprises” for passengers riding the shuttles to and from the airport parking lots.

It all looks like a lot of fun, but my favorite events will be taking place on Friday, May 10th, when reps from Explore St. Louis will be on duty handing out one of the city’s signature food items, pre-packaged Gooey Louie cakes and passengers will able to get their pictures taken with (a cardboard cut-out of) St. Louis rock & roll icon Chuck Berry.

In addition to daily live music performances, here are few other highlights of the week:

Tuesday, May 7 is Mascot Day. Look for the mascots from the St. Louis Cardinals (Fredbird), the St. Louis Rams (Rampage), the St. Louis Blues (Louie) and Six Flags WB characters Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny.

Wednesday, May 8, is Airlines Day, and carriers will be handing out candy and other giveaways.
