Festival Friday 4-13-12

One more week down the hatch, Missouri! I hope you have something exciting on the books for the weekend, even though it looks like the spring weather made a turn for the very, very unspring-y, unpleasant, dreary, miserable, cold, nasty weather. It’s my fault actually. Here I was talking about how awesome our weather was and that I just really didn’t think there was any chance of it getting cold again. Open mouth, insert foot!



If you’re looking for something to celebrate the spookiness of Friday the 13th, and you’re in the St Joe area, you’ll want to do the ghost tour which meets in front of Barbosa’s Mexican Restaurant on Sylvanie St. Tickets are $15, tour runs from 8p-10p. Phone 785-851-0856 or visit ghosttoursofkansas.com for more info.

Tomorrow morning in Montauk State Park (Salem, MO), you can meet up for the Spring Wildflower Event from 9a-11:30a. 573-548-2201. I believe this event is free. Don’t know if free is worth enduring the crapness of this weather. Your choice.

Like wings? Check out the Spring Fling Wing Ding (try saying that 5 times super fast!) in Springfield at the Battlefield Mall at S Glenstone and E Battlefield. 417-708-1909 & springfieldfarmersmarket.com. This event is Saturday from 8:30am-1pm. A little early for wing dinging if you ask me but hey, I don’t think you really did. Also in Springfield, the Ozark Mountain Wine Trail is hosting a customer appreciation day and offering wine tastings (sure way to bring me in everytime!) and cheese samples.

If you’re in the St Louis area, and the weather allows (even though the website said nothing of pending weather conditions) you can visit a Walk Through Time event celebrating the new Great Rivers Greenway at Jefferson Barracks County Park. On Saturday from 10a-3p, you can watch war re-enactments for free throughout the park. At 7p, you can choose to take a guided tour and pay only $5. Phone 314-544-6224.

Hope you enjoy your weekend Missouri! I know I will (minus 9a-3p on Sunday that I’m stuck in the dungeon of my work). See ya soon! The Gravel-Roadin’ Guru, Pan
