St. Louis Earth Day Festival 2014

The predicted rain held off long enough to have another beautiful Earth Day festival here in St. Louis. Held each year the week of Earth Day, the festival showcases everything green the city has to offer.

Fun fact about the Muny – the last 9 rows of seats are free and first come first serve. Some of my first Broadway shows were seen from the Muny free seats with my grandma.

St. Louis Earth Day Festival One of the coolest parts of the Earth Day Festival is the valet bike parking provided by Trailnet. Since I live across the river, it’s not exactly feasible to ride my bike to the event. One year we were able to utilize the valet since there was a Trailnet ride scheduled for the same day. We parked in another area in Forest Park, participated in the ride and rode our bikes to the festival afterwards, avoiding the crazy parking situation near the Muny.
