August 15th is ELGL #CityHallSelfie day and Bang the Table is proud to be a sponsor for this year’s event.

We are counting down the days to see all of your smiling faces for City Hall Selfie Day!

So what’s the hype behind this selfie filled day? It’s in celebration of local government and gives you the opportunity to get out in the community and show off your best camera phone skills while showcasing your local government buildings.

People are taking part in this holiday globally by photographing themselves in front of their city hall or local government building and then posting their photos to social media using hashtag #cityhallselfie!

To make it even more fun, ELGL will be reviewing all of the tagged photos and awarding people for a variety of different categories from “most creative” to “most selfies taken by one person.”  Not only will award winners receive a trophy, but Bang the Table will be awarding selfie sticks to winners as well!
