AFFTON, Mo. (AP) - One of the St. Louis area's most popular attractions is celebrating a milestone.
Grant's Farm opens for its 60th season on Saturday. The sprawling facility in south St. Louis County is operated by Anheuser-Busch and is home to some of the Budweiser Clydesdales. It features wild animals, tram rides, baby goat feeding and other activities and draws about a half-million visitors each year.
New for this year will be paddle boat rides on Mirror Lake and a parakeet feeding experience. Grant's Farm also plans to offer "surprises" on 60 days. All will be promoted on the attraction's Facebook page starting May 5.
There is no fee to tour Grant's Farm. Parking is $12 per car and $30 for buses, RVs and oversized vehicles.
