St. Louis Spring Things To Do

Spring on the Arch grounds

Most years, Spring and warmer weather is greatly anticipated in St. Louis because Winters are usually cold and snowy enough that for those who live here, warm weather is welcomed. So it is no wonder that when Spring finally does get here, festivals and parades abound in the area!

Spring Festivals

Several of those festivals take place on Main Street and in Frontier Park in Historic St. Charles. One of the festivals is the Missouri River Irish Fest which celebrates all things Irish with plenty of Guinness! The Missouri Tartan Day-Scottish Festival starts off with a Scottish parade through Historic St. Charles and continues with the festival in Frontier Park. Another festival is the Lewis and Clark Heritage Days which takes place in Frontier Park, an actual campsite for the Lewis and Clark Expedition!

Spring Parades

Several races are held annually during the Spring. Since 2000, the St. Louis Marathon has occurred each year during the GO! St Louis Family Fitness Weekend and attracts thousands of participants. Another race in St. Louis occurs on the morning of the St. Patrick's Day Parade which is held in downtown St. Louis on the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day. It is called the St. Patrick's Day Parade Run and is a 5 mile race that has been held, rain or shine, since 1978. Speaking of parades, the Ancient Order of Hibernians also hosts a St. Patrick's Day Parade which is on March 17th in the traditionally Irish Dogtown Neighborhood of St. Louis. The annual Annie Malone May Day Parade is held in May. Marching bands, floats, drum and bugle corps all add up to a fun and exciting parade!

Cardinal Baseball is Back!

And it wouldn't be Spring without the opening day festivities of the first home game of the St. Louis Cardinals! Many Opening Day Pep Rallies are held downtown on the day of that first home game which is considered by most Cardinal fans, a holiday!
