Upcoming activities include Cards and Rams games for the sports fanatics, the 19th Annual Art Fair Sept. 7-9 in downtown Clayton, and the Forest Park Great Balloon Race Sept. 15. For more information on St. Louis events visit explorestlouis.com

Just a short drive across the river in Alton and Grafton, IL, nature trails, symphony concerts, riverboat cruises, wine tastings and music by the river are just a few things to happen in the coming weeks. For more information on upcoming Alton area events keep an eye on our Calendar of Events or visit www.visitalton.com
