Rain or shine, we’re well into Spring. Which means it’s time for the Kirkwood Spring Fling once again. Benefitting the Kirkwood Neighbors Organization, the family-friendly festival features a 5K, juried Artist Market with more than 90 booths, tons of live music, creative kids’ activities, a new Green Area and the Tour of Homes.
This year’s music includes No Parachute, Lauren St. Jane & the Dead Westerns, The Deadfields, Blair Crimmins and the Hookers, Noot d’ Noot, Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics.
If you’re bringing the little ones, there will be everything from a moonbounce, festival games (and prizes!), Wren’s Nest storyteller Mama Koku, hooping with HoopEssence, crafts with SoulShine, and if that hasn’t exhausted them, a circus camp.
Food trucks, water, soft drinks, beer and homemade sangria will be available to keep you on your toes through the weekend.
The Tour of Homes will feature Victorian, Queen Anne, Eastlake, Craftsman and modern architecture seen in seven homes built from the late 1800s to 1900s.
