Strings 'n Straw was created and managed by SMPS volunteers. A very successful Sunday afternoon music and hayride event held October 26, 2014.

Visitors enjoyed a variety of music styles by musicians positioned the length of South Main, and free hayrides. The event was respectful of the neighborhood: volume was controlled, the event was during the day, no liquor was served, no booths competing with merchants were included. Strings 'n Straw promoted visitor enjoyment as visitors were drawn the length of South Main while shopping and dining.

SMPS volunteers made straw hats for all musicians and hayride helpers. A logo was designed and the event was promoted on the Rendezvous in St. Charles website and Rendezvous Facebook page.

A fun day indeed.
