Roll & Read Part of Great Rivers Greenway Life Outside Festival, June 8 at Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park


As part of our 35th Anniversary celebration, we are planning a fun Roll & Read event in conjunction with the Great Rivers Greenway Life Outside Festival on June 8, 2019 from 10am to 4pm.

This will be a really fun event lasting the entire time and we need some volunteers to make it a huge success.

We plan to give everyone an opportunity to stroll and read two books along a one-mile trail in the park. We have someone who has already generously volunteered to dress as a duck!

Parents as Teachers National Center and Great Rivers Greenway invite you to bring your friends, family and neighbors to the 4th Annual Life Outside Festival. The event will be held Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 10am to 4pm at Creve Couer Lake Memorial Park in Maryland Heights.

Parents as Teachers National Center and other partner organizations from across the region will let you see, try and learn about a variety of outdoor activities you can do in our region in a free, fun and supportive environment. Activities will include outdoor experiences related to active living, camping, cycling, mind and body, nature and conservation, paddling and running.

In between activities, you can purchase food and beverages from a variety of popular area food trucks and listen to one of 18 musical acts that will be performing throughout the day. Drinking water in reusable bottles and sunscreen will also be available for free.

To ensure greater access to the event, the Life Outside Festival will offer free round-trip shuttles from the North Hanley, Civic Center and Shrewsbury MetroLink Stations. You can also park and ride free shuttles from the Zumbehl Commuter Lot in St. Charles County (adjacent to the intersection of Veterans Memorial Parkway and Zumbehl Road) and Pattonville High School (2497 Creve Couer Mill Rd., Maryland Heights, MO 63043).

More information about the Life Outside Festival can be found at Hope to see you there!
