Chinese Culture Days

The always popular Chinese Culture Days return to the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard; www.mobot.org) this Saturday and Sunday (April 22 and 23) with acrobats, tai chi demonstrations and a food court full of choice dishes representing China's immense selection of regional cuisines. The highlight of the festival is the Grand Parade, which stars a 70-foot-long dancing dragon; it's so popular it takes place at 2 p.m. on both days. Chinese Culture Days takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $7 to $17.
