Five things to do this weekend in St. Louis County

Master gardening and free family days at Laumeier Sculpture Park

12580 Rott Rd., Sunset Hills

Saturday, Aug. 12, join Laumeier’s Master Gardener to learn tips and tricks to keep your garden looking fresh during the hot summer months, including a visit to Laumeier’s gardens for inspiration.

Sunday, Aug. 13, 2 to 4 p.m.

Free Family Days provide families a chance to bond while encouraging observation, imagination, curiosity and creativity. Participants of all ages are given structured activities using a variety of materials to create artwork based on personal experience. Activities are designed to be simple enough for ages 4 and up to enjoy, yet complex enough that more experienced young artists can take their projects to another level. Admission is free.

Families can have fun exploring new media and concepts while finding inspiration among Laumeier’s natural environment, temporary exhibitions and the Permanent Collection. For more information, visit


Friday extended hours at Grant’s Farm

10501 Gravois Rd., Crestwood

Food trucks, free beer!

Grant’s farm stays open until 8 p.m. Pay to park, walk around the farm and ride the train for free.

Saturday, Aug. 12, World Elephant Day means the farm’s largest residents will be greeting guests and performing (along with their handlers, of course) to educate people about elephants.


Form a fall bowling league at Tropicana Lanes

7960 Clayton Rd., Richmond Heights

(314) 781-0282

Tropicana Lanes is putting teams together now of all ages, all skill levels. Beat the heat Friday, $55 for two hours of bowling and five shoe rentals. Saturdays, $65 for the same deal. Also on Saturdays and Sundays, Tropicana Lanes offers an early bird special: $2 per game per person from 10 a.m. to noon.

General Manager Travis Saathoff says when people think of bowling leagues, they tend to think of traditional, competitive and boring. But he says Tropicana Lanes also does social leagues that appeal to a lot of 20-somethings and the college-age crowd.

“It’s a good fall and winter alternative to kickball and softball leagues — sometimes we call those beer leagues, it’s basically the same thing,” Saathoff said. “It’s ten weeks, $10 per person, four-person teams. It’s not a big commitment, in fact, it’s no commitment — if you don’t show up you don’t pay.”

People have a lot of fun and get creative with team names, he said.

“We always keep it family friendly but some people do push the boundaries.”


Free concerts in the park

4201 Fee Fee Rd., Bridgeton

Abbey Road, a Beatles inspired band, brings the British Invasion to St. Louis County Sunday, Aug. 13. The band plays from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Gentry Park Bandshell.
