The most beautiful season in Kansas City? Many people would say Autumn because of the warm days, cool nights and brilliant fall colors on the trees. And one of the most welcoming, friendly communities in Brookside is St Peter’s Parish. Fall and festivals go together, so this weekend you are invited to the St. Peter’s Meyer Fest, now in it’s second year. In the past, the church held a parish “fiesta” on the school grounds geared towards parishioners and school families. Meyer Fest is an expanded street party and carnival , welcome to anyone in the area who wants to join in the fun!
Here’s a brief schedule of events:
Friday October 9, 2015
6pm-10pm– Tailgate and Chili Cook-Off at KC Bier Co, 310 W. 79th St in Waldo
Saturday October 10, 2015
9am-3pm — Carnival at St Peter’s, 815 E Meyer, with games, crafts and activities for kids.
10:30am and noon — Performances from the Starlight Theater STARS of Tomorrow.
1:00pm — Battle of the Bands!
6pm-10:30pm — Live music from The Bryan Hicks Quartet, The Rainmakers and Boogie Wonderland, plus dancing and food trucks.
Ticket prices range from $5-$20, depending on activity and can be purchased online with NO additional fees! Proceeds from Meyer Fest benefit the St Peter’s Food Pantry and their sister parish in El Salvador.
Volunteers are needed, so if you want to get involved, visit the website for details. Thanks, St. Peter’s, for hosting another community event for Brookside/Waldo neighbors!
I am pleased to hear that the repairs on the fountain on Rockhill will be completed soon, but am discouraged that progress on the Armour Circle fountain is moving so slowly. Is there any hope that the fountain will flow again in 2016? This fountain is a centerpiece in our neighborhood and it had been dry and stagnant for two years. The last posting I saw said the board was seeking proposals for the work. Why the delay?

My work schedule prevents me attending meetings. I have communicated my concerns to the board president as well.
