It's high season for ethnic festivals. Strassenfest and the Greater St. Louis Hispanic Festival were held recently; the Greek and Japanese festivals are on the horizon. But this weekend the whole damn world gets to celebrate when the Festival of Nations hits Tower Grove Park. Brooke Foster has the specifics here.
If you don't spot me waiting in line for an empanada or three, I'll be sitting in the shade with a can of Bud and the Bosnian sausage miracle cevapi. Advice to Festival of Nations newcomers: Bring lots of cash. You'll want to eat a little bit of a lot of things.
