Weekend Happening: October 29-31

The CWE is the epicenter of Halloween fun in St. Louis. Period. The freaks come out at night when the gorgeous tree-lined streets are shut down for one of the largest street parties of the year. Note: the evening event is ADULTS ONLY, as you are guaranteed interesting people watching. Huge costume contest, drinks, and food. Great time with friends!
