Parade of STL 250 cakes to open Let Them Eat Art

This year’s Let them Eat Art, Maplewood’s “Whimsical Tribute to Bastille Day” on Friday  July 10 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., will offer a special parade. A parade of the St. Louis 250 Cakes, courtesy of  STL 250 Cakelovers, will kick off the fun with a parade of cakes down Sutton Boulevard at 6:30 p.m. Following the parade — “Cake Walk to Cake Land” — the cakes, along with the artists, will be displayed along Sutton Boulevard and other Maplewood spots. The idea is to get the public to interact with the artist, said Francine Case, owner of St. Louis 250 Cake Lovers.
