Kirkwood's Greentree Festival--Sept 18-20

As I mentioned a while back, this month is truly the month of festivals!

There will be lots of activities for the whole family at this weekend's Greentree Festival in Kirkwood. This annual community festival boasts a parade, booths, dance and music (including a whole tent devoted to Missouri fiddlers!), arts and crafts, a classic car show, a sailboat regatta, a folklife area devoted to life in the 1700-1800's, and a kids' area on Saturday and Sunday.

The parade will be held on Saturday at 10am and covers a parade route stretching 1.7 miles. The route begins at Kirkwood High School, travels east on Essex to Kirkwood Road, then south on Kirkwood Road to Argonne, and then west on Argonne, finishing at the Kirkwood Community Center.

The festival will be held in Kirkwood Park at the intersection of Adams Ave. and Geyer Rd. The festival will be open from 5-10pm on Friday, 8:30am-7pm on Saturday, and 10am-5pm on Sunday.
