This family of walkers was resting on the wall surrounding the World War I Soldiers Memorial. They will not have fun and you can't make them. You may have noticed the pink rabbit ears in other pictures in this series. Energizer Batteries has their headquarters on the edge of downtown and was a sponsor of the event. Their advertising theme for ages has been the Energizer Bunny who keeps going and going and going. The company was giving away the ears to anyone who would take them.
The reason for this event is summed up in a portrait on St. Louis Daily Photo.
