It’s Time to Celebrate Outdoors with Song, Dance and Dogs
Since the calendar shows it’s spring, what better way to enjoy the season than experiencing special events in our area parks.
This week’s Get Out suggestions have gone to the dogs! You and your four-legged friend can raise money for the American Cancer Society by walking together on Saturday. Then on Sunday, pop over to Forest Park and participate in the many activities showcased at the Earth Day Festival. For some indoor fun you can research your family history, shop for jewelry or take your little girl to a fancy story time. Whatever you’re in the mood for, we have selected a variety of events to meet your needs.
Bark for Life of West County MO
An event is always more fun when you can spend it with your best friend. And if you both can have a good time while helping a worthwhile cause then it becomes a “must do” activity. The American Cancer Society Bark for Life™ is a twist on its signature Relay for Life events where you and your dog enjoy a walk through one of Saint Louis County’s beautiful parks. The day also includes demonstrations, contests and games.
