Mayor Launches Welcome to Columbia Tix for Pix Challenge | Arts & Culture
In honor of Kenny Chesney’s return to Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin today proclaimed Saturday, May 4, 2013 to be Kenny Chesney Day in the City of Columbia and is asking everyone to help show the No Shoes Nation Tour what “Famously Hot” Columbia hospitality is all about with a Welcome to Columbia Tix for Pix Challenge.
The Welcome to Columbia Tix for Pix Challenge rules are simple –
STEP 1: Come up with your own creative way to show Kenny Chesney and the No Shoes Nation Tour the kind of southern hospitality Columbia is famous for.
STEP 2: Take a picture of your welcome with your phone or digital camera
STEP 3: Post it to Mayor Benjamin’s Facebook page or Twitter @stevebenjaminsc #tixforpix or between Noon today and Noon tomorrow.
The two most creative entries will each win tickets for them and a guest to see Kenny Chesney and the No Shoes Nation Tour this Saturday night at Williams-Brice Stadium.
“This is an opportunity for all of us to come together and celebrate not only Kenny Chesney’s return to our fair city and his ground breaking body of work, but also the critical mass of culture and creativity growing right here in Columbia,” said Mayor Benjamin. “This is our opportunity to show a world-class recording artist that we are a world-class city. We are Columbia!”
Kenny Chesney has sold over a million tickets to each of his past 10 tours, won the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music's Entertainer of the Year Award a combined 8 times, had 24 #1 hits and sold over 30 million albums.
Enter the Tix for Pix Challenge today and let’s give this world-class recording artist a world-class welcome from a world-class city!
