1 p.m. Thursday September 13, 2012 Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman arrives at the site of the mysterious “big box” in downtown Columbus in a race car to reveal the gift for Columbus’ 200th birthday.
A billboard rose to the top of the box, shooting confetti into the air, displaying a giant billboard.
The billboard gave details for a new festival tittled idUS, an 11-day celebration of innovation and design, with events showcasing the best of the best in Columbus.
“2012, our 200-year anniversary, we respect our past. We acknowledge our past, but this is the year we rise as a launching pad for the future and that’s what idUS is all about,” Coleman said.
The idUS Festival is scheduled for Sept. 28 to Oct. 8, 2012…… visit http://idus.us/ for more details
