Below are five of the best ways to spend this weekend in St. Louis including the Purina Pet Parade, Riverdance at the Fox Theatre and more.

Purina Pet Parade | February 16

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.

Ben Folds | February 13 – 14

Top indie rock sensation Ben Folds is back by popular demand to collaborate with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra after sold-out performances in 2017. A champion for orchestras, Folds blends pop and classical music to highlight the beauty of orchestral music, creating an engaging concert experience. Treat your special someone this Valentine’s Day weekend while Ben Folds serenades for this one-of-a-kind performance, featuring fan-favorites and orchestral arrangements with the SLSO.

Show your favorite work of art some love this Valentine’s Day weekend! Visit  the Saint Louis Art Museum this weekend and pick up a free paper heart at one of the Museum Information Centers.
