A classic for the end of summer (Sept. 25)

September 21, 2009

After coming off a long weekend — M. was off school Friday and we did indeed spend the day setting up a campsite, as I mentioned in my last post! — I’m finding it to be a thoroughly Mondayish start to the week!  Consequently, I’m looking forward to the weekend, where there are a gazillion things I want to do, starting on Friday night (Sept. 25) with the End of the Summer Party in Olivette, when Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory will be on the screen.  Yes, the classic 1971 version, not the 2005 remake with Charlie in the title. There are also inflatibles and free pony rides, plus video games on the big screen (this is getting to be quite the popular passtime at outdoor movies — next summer Frontyard Features is even doing a summerlong tournament around them). You can buy concessions or BYO, and don’t forget chairs and/or blankets. Things get underway in Stacy Park at 5 p.m., and the movie starts at 7:30 p.m. For details, call the city’s parks and recreation department at 314.991.1249.
