Spooky times down on the farm (Oct. 9-11, 16-19, 23-25)

October 7, 2008

The Halloween and Christmas festivals at Grant’s Farm are a classic in St. Louis, the kind of thing it’s easy to skip (like a visit to the Arch) unless out-of-town guests happen to be visiting.  But don’t wait for visitors — pack up as many people as you can to get the most out of the $20-a-car parking fee, keeping in mind that once you’ve parked, admission is free.

During cold weather the outdoor nature of the entertainment can make it a daunting outing for the faint of heart, but the coming weekend promises to be just the kind of weather for reveling in the spookiness of the wooded hillsides on which Grant’s Farm is located.  There are two alternating shows each evening, one about science and one featuring Halloween creatures.  But in keeping with the family-friendly vibe, there are also non-scary creatures roaming around and DJ blasting away any untimely creaks and shrieks.

The grounds are open from 6 to 10 p.m., with the final admission at 9 p.m.  For details, visit the Grant’s Farm homepage or call 314.843.1700.
