Be Birmingham contest reopens!


That was the internal name for the “orange sign” contest that we recently attempted. We received one entry for the contest from Rod Needham (that’s it up above), at which time we learned that because of changing servers last week, folks may have found it difficult to submit their entries. BTW, Rod’s submission, which will be uploaded to the set by this afternoon, said that he thinks of “precipitation” when he thinks of Birmingham… You’ll have to read his entry. That said, I figured we’d reopen the contest, starting… NOW! NOTE: It closes on Thursday, March 12, at 5 p.m.

UPDATE: Is the Heritage Festival returning?

UPDATE – 5.19.2009: According to Urbanham.com, the festival will return in mid-August. Here are the details.

A quick look around the Internet late last night brought up this page of information for folks wondering about the future of the Birmingham Heritage Festival.

There is no location listed but there are dates for this year’s event (in August) and contact information for anyone looking to be involved in the festival. We’ll keep an eye on it and look forward to doing some coverage of it this summer.
