Portrait of Mayor Francis G. Slay 2010Last month, the City of St. Louis announced the second year of Open Streets events. This year's events, scheduled for two Saturdays in October, will wind through Old North St. Louis and The Grove neighborhoods. 


October 8, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

This Open Streets route will wind through Old North St. Louis. Connecting to the Old North Farmers' Market and the Riverfront Trail, this route is excellent for serious cyclists as well as those who simply want to visit Crown Candy Kitchen, stroll through the marketplace, or see the community's acclaimed revitalization of historic properties. This event will feature Healthy Living activities such as yoga and Zumba, as well as some of St. Louis' favorite food trucks, live music, and art, active living, and culinary demonstrations.

The second route will highlight The Grove neighborhood in the City. In addition to the usual Healthy Living activities and entertainment, this Open Streets will also feature Halloween-themed activities for children in the afternoon. There will be Trick or Treating at the businesses along Manchester Road, costume contests, and other fun activities for both children and the young at heart. A more adult-oriented party on Manchester will continue into the evening. View The Grove route at
