Come out and volunteer or just enjoy one of the best festivals in St. Louis. The Earthday Festival is one of the top 3 festivals of it’s kind in the country attracting around 75,000 visitors over the two days. There will be music, food, education booths as well as some really cool vendors. This event is right in front of the Muny in Forest Park. It’s a great place to bring the kids, grandkids, and dogs. There is plenty of parking and shuttles. If you would like to volunteer, please contact me and I can walk you through the process. I have been working at this event for quite a few years and the Earthday folks are awesome. I realize this event covers 2 days and people have different schedules as to when they might be able to make it. I will be there from start to finish both days and can help you find things of interest. The easiest way to find me is to call[masked] or find a volunteer there and they can reach me on the walkie talkie. If there is interest, maybe we can get together afterwards on Saturday.
Please join us at our Farm in the morn at Grants Farm. We go in the morning before it gets too hot and it gets crowded. Admission is free but it cost to park. What seems to work is meeting at the Schnucks parking lot just up Gravois and carpooling the very short distance to Grants Farm. We will meet along the fence of the parking lot by the cross walk to the entrance. We then board the train and take a tour of farm and many animals they have there. We then get off and have the chance to walk around, see one of the animal shows, feed the baby goats, and check out the other animals. Since everyone likes to go in their own direction, we end up meeting in the beer garden. You can sample the beers, walk through the historic barns that surround the garden which have different things of interest, and we take time out to just sit down and talk with each other. It is truly a relaxing and fun morning. We also take a short train ride back to the cars. On the other side of the lot you can find the Clydesdales which only enhances the visit. Afterwards, for those who are interested, we can go nearby to some place for lunch. I know a great Bar B Que place or we can go where ever the group wants to go. This is a kid friendly event. Any questions, call me at[masked]
Please join us as we rock and roll on the river. We always have a blast on Blues Cruise. First there is always great music and this time is no different as the popular Jeremiah Johnson band will be playing. The dance floor will be open and active. And if that’s not enough there is an open air top deck where you can go to see some great views of the riverfront, the Stan Musial bridge and just enjoy the cruise on the river. This event will probably sell out so get your tickets now. Tickets are about $22.00 and you can get them on line or via the phone. Google the Gateway Arch and you will find something on the riverboat cruises. If you have problems finding it, call me[masked] and I can help you. Some helpful tips. They do sell drinks on the boat but very little in the way of food. I would suggest eating (and drinking) beforehand. Also, there is no assigned seats so first come, first serve. I try to get there early and get up in line to get a table(s) on the level you enter on (the main level. It is always helpful to have more there to possibly get more seats together. Once again, rsvp’s help so I know who to look for. Last, allow yourself time to get parked and on the boat. Parking is usually available on the river front depending on the water level.
