In what can only be deemed an attempt to drum up some business, the official convention and visitors bureau of Saint Paul, Minnesota, is taking a trip to Milwaukee this weekend. That’s because the Freedom to Marry Bill recently passed in Minnesota, and same-sex marriages will start Aug. 1.
To spread the word, Visit Saint Paul’s mobile visitor center, nicknamed Paul, will set up near the main gate during Pridefest June 8 and 9.
And you might want to stop by. Anyone that takes a picture with Paul and submits it is entered into a drawing to win a package including an overnight hotel stay and two tickets to Beyonce on July 18 in a suite at Xcel Energy Center. That or an iPad Mini. All entrants are also entered into a drawing for the VIP Saint Paul Experience – a $4,000 value.
Paul will also distribute information on complimentary wedding services for same-sex couples as well as promotion of the Twin Cities Pride festival June 29-30.
