Annual Festival in Florissant Promises a Weekend of Fun
Since 1963, the Valley of Flowers Festival celebration has been the “first festival of spring,” featuring a variety of events, including a superb parade. Events included in this three-day celebration are a flower and plant sale, culturally diverse performances, baseball games, a classic car show, a vendor/craft fair, flea market, a pretty baby photo contest, children’s activities and, of course, good food. Carnival games and exciting rides are featured at the Duchesne Knights of Columbus Fairgrounds.

For a person who is known as Rand McNally’s daughter, I’m not sure why it’s difficult for me to grasp locations in between 44 and 55 in south city. But I’m always confused, especially when I get on Gravois from the city. Our recent Dining Divas outing took me past Uncle Bills and lots of churches to the neighborhood of Princeton Heights. Who knew it even existed? But I’m glad I found it. Sitting on the corner of Gravois and Quincy Street is the Quincy Street Bistro, our Divas choice for the month.

Silver Dollar City’s World-Fest Ending
22-Year Run, Going Out in Big Style
By Bob Lindsey
The concept of entertainers from multi cultures and countries didn’t seem quite fitting 22 years ago when Silver Dollar City first introduced park visitors to World-Fest. After 22 successful Spring seasons for World-Fest, the event still has two and half-more weeks before taking a final bow on May 1. Over the years, the event has been a successful addition.

Ozarks and America, always changing. This is the patriotic salute near the end of the show.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
