Weekend Happening...

A lot going on this weekend, St. Louis! If looking for something fun and affordable to do, below are a couple of my local family- friendly favorites happening this weekend...

Forest Park Balloon Glow and Race

Energizer presents the 38th annual Great Forest Park Balloon Race this weekend! The Balloon Glow will be on Friday evening on Central Field (the site of the Race) and will be a walk through event only -- not a drive through event. The Balloon Race will take place on Central Field by the Jewel Box in Forest Park, on Saturday afternoon. The Great Forest Park Balloon Race is free, open to the public, and welcomes over 130,000 visitors every year.

September 17-18 - Full schedule HERE.
