New Red White Blue & You T-Shirt Design
The City of Lake Charles is excited to reveal the design for the 2011 Red White Blue & You festival t-shirt. The design is reminiscent of the architecture along the newly remodeled Lakefront Promenade with fireworks bursting over the Lake. The back of the shirt lists the corporate sponsors that make the popular community event possible. Each year a new festival t-shirt is designed. Many Red White Blue & You patrons have collected them throughout the history of the event. The t-shirts will be on sale for $7 during the July Fourth festivities at the Civic Center Arcade Pavilion from 7-9pm.
The artist for the 2011 design is Michael F. Webb, author, illustrator and dad. Webb is in the process of publishing the “Daddy & I” series of children’s books. His inspiration for the festival t-shirt came from the first book of the series. It is a simple story about a dad and his son spending the evening at the Civic Center grounds enjoying the Lakefront Promenade, fountains and play grounds. Webb said, “Our hope is that the book series will inspire other dads to share not only reading a book with their children, but also to go out and experience such fun and adventures with their children as well.” For more information on “Daddy & I” visit http://www.nspiredad.com
