March Funness

Yes I’m aware the title of this blog seems a bit awkward and grammatically incorrect but when it’s your blog you can do what you want.  It’s a play on March Madness but I’m sure you know that by now.  We are all about fun here at Watering Our Seeds.  We’ve combed the internet to find all the fun happening in St. Louis in March.  The weather has been unexpectedly nice so let’s hope it continues through March.  Let’s enjoy some fun as we welcome in Spring.  Happy Living!!!

St. Patrick’s Day Parade – St. Louis shows off its Irish pride with two St. Patrick’s Day parades. This year, the parades are held on different days so you can attend both!  The downtown parade is held on March 11th at noon.  It starts at 20th and Market.  The second parade will be held in Dogtown on March 17th.  The parade starts at 12:30pm at Tamm and Oakland.  This should be fun for all.
