Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun-filled weekend in St. Louis. If you are pulling your plans together for the weekend, here are 5 things to do this weekend to help plan.

Mardi Gras’ Bud Light Grand Parade | February 10

With a nod to our French heritage, St. Louis is famous for throwing one of the best Mardi Gras celebrations anywhere. On Saturday, the ultimate party will be going on throughout the streets of Soulard during the Bud Light Grand Parade kicking off at Busch Stadium and proceeds through the streets of Downtown South and Soulard to the place where your beer was born: Anheuser-Busch Brewery.

Science on Tap | February 10

Learn about the chemistry and science behind the entire brewing and bottling process.  This event features 80+ beer tastings, science deonstrations, live music and more!  This total sensory experience will let you be hands-on with some of beer brewing’s most popular ingredients. Experience molecular gastronomy with your favorite beer, discover how buoyant your beer is and many other science demonstrations.

The Humans | February 8 – March 3

Stephen Karam’s play, set in a New York City apartment during an especially tense Thanksgiving dinner in which multiple generations sit around the table, took the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 2016—and picked up four Tony Awards along the way, including for Best Play. The New York Times praised its “fresh-feeling blend of documentary-like naturalism and theatrical daring,” calling it “a haunting, beautifully realized play.”

St. Louis Boat & Sportshow | February 8 – 11

It may only be February, but it is not too early to start making plans for a summer of fun in the sun. You’ll find nearly one thousand boats for every lifestyle at the St. Louis Boat & Sportshow at America’s Center. Whether you’re on the hunt for a boat or are just looking to escape winter’s chill for the day, this is your one-stop for planning your next outdoor adventure.

Orchid Show | February 3 – March 25

The annual Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden offers visitors a once-a-year opportunity to see a rotating display of hundreds of orchids from the Garden’s expansive permanent living collection amid a tropical oasis inside the Orthwein Floral Display Hall.
