As the weekend draws near, what is there to do in Florissant or nearby?
We’ve got the perfect solution for you -- lots.We’re running down five places or events happening in Florissant and North County this weekend for you and the family.
It’s a dog day at the pool Friday and Saturday as the city hosts its annual Doggie Pool Party. Bring your dog to Koch Family Aquatic Park and let him have a great wet and wild time. Dogs must wear an ID tag, be on a leash (unless in the pool), be up-to-date on vaccines and owners must clean up after the dog.
Families can shop and enjoy themselves early Saturday morning at the Ferguson Farmer’s Market. This week, take a trip through Germany as it’s Germanfest. Enjoy apple strudel and Black Forest custard as well as Imperial Pilsner, and Heifeweizen beer, along with pulled pork while listening to German music. Of course, the market will also feature a number of other vendors with fruits, vegetables and food that you can buy. The market is open 8 a.m.-noon at 20 S. New Florissant Road.
The First Christian Church in Florissant will be hosting a parking lot sale with garage sale and craft vendors on hand Saturday, 7 a.m.-noon. The proceeds will go toward helping the church repave and restripe its parking lot.
Butch Wax and the Hollywoods will hit the stage for the Music Under the Stars series Saturday at St. Ferdinand Park. The band plays a wide variety of music from the 60s, 70s and Motown grooves even. The concert starts at 7 p.m.
If you’re a woman who enjoys shopping for fine items, then you don’t need the mall. You need the Emerson Family YMCA. Emerson YMCA will host a Ladies Night Out and Shopping Event, Friday 6:30-8:30 p.m. Get home decor, jewelry, beauty items and more during this free event. Proceeds will benefit the YMCA Community Strong Campaign.
