Forest Park Balloon Race 2010

September 17, 2010 by Post Team 

Forest Park Balloon Race 2010, September is the transition month between summer and autumn. In general, there is altogether too hot and not too cold yet. Events and festivals this month swarm like moths to the lights. And for some reason, the third weekend in September seems to be the epicenter of fall festivals.

Locally we Affton Days, Kirkwood Greentree Festival and the Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival. Events around our largest city include the annual Great Forest Park Balloon race that always falls on the same weekend. Check the calendar Times for more.

Some of these events to spread a little – Kirkwood Greentree Festival Parade used to be the second Saturday of the month and festival activities at Kirkwood Park disseminates climate risks through at least two weekends.

For those of us who do business in several communities, our role is limited to the times overlap. Times employees Terry Cassidy will be in the Kirkwood Greentree Parade. Jim Slama is mounted on a golf cart in the Affton Days Parade and work of the party that follows.

Webster-Kirkwood repeatedly for years became the main sponsor of the Old Webster Jazz and Blues Festival. Times General Manager Mary Salas has been volunteer coordinator for six years. Yes, that’s where many of our holiday hours go by volunteers. If employees are hidden at times runs with the ball – well, just do not quote. I’ve traditionally been a part of the night Old Webster Jazz Festival cleaning equipment. More volunteers are welcome 10 am-02 pm

Affton Days

The parade starts at Affton High School in Mackenzie Road at 10 am and ends at the Parish of St. George in Heeger and Gravois. San Jorge is the site of the Affton Days Festival rides, food and entertainment until late afternoon.

Kirkwood Greentree Festival

This year marks the 50 Th for the festival, which began in 1961 to raise money for trees to replace the majestic elms of the city that fell victim to Dutch elm disease.

The parade starts Saturday at 10 am at Kirkwood High School, runs along Kirkwood Road and ends back in the Kirkwood Community Center. Food and music, family activities, a book fair and the fun continue through Sunday at Kirkwood Park. The folklife festival was a favorite when my children were young continues.

Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival

This year marks the tenth Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival. Saturday’s event is centered on Gore and Lockwood avenues in Webster Groves. It starts at noon and goes until 11 pm there are stages to the implementation of Gore and Allen Avenues. Food vendors and street musicians are part of the scene.

Night headliners include Dona Oxford Band with Johnny Johnson and Marquise Knox. A new evening event combines poetry and jazz performances. That will be in Burr McCaughan and Art Gallery at 19 N. Ave Gore (former home of Rodolfo Department Store) from 2 to 4 pm
