At the world’s largest costumed pet parade, we combine all the fun of Mardi Gras with all the AWWWWs that the most adorable parade participants deserve. It is free to watch and easy to head straight to the Taste of Soulard or Wiener Dog Derby after the parade wraps up.
If you were a seed you’d have a complicated job to do. Protect the life inside, travel away from the parent plant, wait for just the right conditions, and then sprout – sending roots down and leaves up and not the other way around. How does a seed do all that? Join us as we explore these and other interesting questions about seeds and sprouts. You can even make a sprouting experiment to take home.
Cure that cabin fever by joining us on a late winter hike in the open woods of Rockwoods Reservation for a new perspective of nature.

Natural surface hiking with a couple short, steep hills.
