5 Things To Do This Weekend in St. Louis 4/8 – 4/10
Happy Friday! It’s time for a fun-filled weekend in St. Louis. If you are still pulling your plans together, here are a few suggestions to help make this a memorable weekend.
Ballpark Village Family Fun Day | April 9
Get the littlest Cards fans in your life properly hyped up in advance of the Opening Day game at Busch Stadium, and help raise money for a good cause. Family Fun Day is free, but a $5 wristband gets unlimited turns on a giant inflatable slide, twister sling, and wrecking ball, and the money raised will go to Stray Rescue of St. Louis. Fredbird will even make time in his busy schedule to rally the troops.
GO! St. Louis Marathon and Family Fitness Weekend | April 9-10
It’s not just a race, it’s a party as over 25,000 participants will be taking to the streets this weekend, as the GO! St. Louis Marathon & Family Fitness Weekend returns to help you and your family make staying fit a top priority. The weekend features races for people of all ages and levels of fitness that includes a marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, 5K run/walk, GO! St. Louis Read, Right & Run Marathon, children’s fun runs and a mature mile.
Willie Nelson & Family | April 9
To call Willie Nelson a “living legend” is anything but an overstatement; he has a staggering 200 records to his name, including classics like The Red-Headed Stranger (and that output doesn’t even count all the songs he’s written for other artists). Jamey Johnson and Ryan Bingham join him on stage for the show, which promises to be an extra somber, and extra poignant show, after the recent death of Nelson’s longtime friend and collaborator, Merle Haggard, who joined him for a good leg of this tour before being hospitalized with double pneumonia in December.

The amazing world of Steve Spielberg’s masterpiece, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, comes to the big screen at Powell Hall as the Saint Louis Symphony performs John Williams’ Academy Award®-winning score live. Your entire family will once again fall in love with this heartwarming classic about a young boy who befriends a lost alien trying to find his way home.
Anheuser-Busch National Beer Day | April 9
It’s been more than 80 years since the Repeal of Prohibition, but our friends at Anheuser-Busch are pulling out all the stops to replicate the festivities that went down in 1933 with their celebration of National Beer Day. Adults are invited to dress in period attire and enjoy all the fun, including live music, a special food menu at the Biergarten and the march of the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales down Pestalozzi Street.
