Bring your kite to be part of the Kite Festival, or come early and be one of 200 participants to receive a free kite-building kit. Volunteers will help kids put their kites together. 370 Lakeside Park should provide plenty of wind off the lake!
Families are invited to bring their bikes to ride the 4.5-mile trail around the 140-acre lake at 370 Lakeside Park. Don’t have a bike? A limited number of adult-sized bikes are available for rent at the park. To encourage bike safety, the St. Peters Community Health and Wellness Committee will distribute up to 100 FREE bike helmets to kids at its booth at the event. The bike helmets were donated compliments of KOHL’S 4 Kids and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
370 Lakeside Park is located at 1000 Lakeside Park Drive just off Highway 370. Parking is available near the marina and corporate pavilion.
