Today Stellafly Social Media LLC will be leading the “You Are Awesome” Flash Mob that is to take place in areas of downtown Grand Rapids. The point of it is to help kick off the opening weekend of ArtPrize.
Anyone can come and show up for the flash mob. All you have to do to participate is show up with a sign that says “You Are Awesome” on it. The event goes from 5 to 8 p.m. The areas where the most people are expected to be is around the highways and on the bridges coming into the downtown area. From 6-6:30 p.m. there will be a band playing at Calder Plaza, and around that time Stellafly is going to attempt to take a group picture of everyone who showed up as well.
Rich App, director of project management for Stellafly said, “The idea behind this is to welcome tourists into our city and spread an uplifting message to people. We are really lucky that we live in a community where we have so many people who get excited about in participating in stuff that is different.”
Stellafly is a business that works with business professionals to help them promote their services through social media. Stellafly decided to put together a flash mob because of inspiration that Jennifer Jurgens, Spring Lake resident, got when she saw someone standing on the side of the street one day holding a “You Are Awesome” sign.
