Free things to do in St. Louis

Tave Hollins, Staff Writer

As a highschool student, financial stability is difficult to achieve. However, St. Louis makes it easy for students to find things to do on the weekend, with free attractions such as the Zoo, the Art Museum and Muny. But there is only so many times one can stare at a red panda, or see a play.

The internet makes it less difficult for students to experience the city and all of the affordable events. But not everyone knows where to look. Looking for fun things can get stressful and time consuming.

Below, here is a list for free or affordable events for students to go to.

Here are a few free events during the month of late October through November.
