Once again the City of St. Louis Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry is offering hayrides in Forest Park on Friday and Saturday nights on fall weekends. Departing from Wells and Jefferson Drive, tractors pull the wagons for the 45-minute ride. They then return to the departure area where a bonfire is waiting. Groups can bring hot dogs and marshmallows to roast. The bonfire has a one-hour time limit.
