Visit Maryland Heights (VMH) is an organization that can be considered the best source for information about events and attractions in Maryland Heights, Missouri. Unlike the city’s official website, marylandheights.com, the focus of visitmarylandheights.org is specifically on tourism rather than general information about the city. When winter was over, the organization decided to put together a list of five awesome activities for March that helped to kick off spring.
- The Wizard of Oz-Young Performers Edition was held March 16-18 and 23-24 and was a spirited re-telling of the American classic performed by music theater students aged 5-12. The show was performed by kids from the DaySpring School of the Arts, a renowned academy for dance, theater, drama, and music.
- GO APE! is described on VMH’s official site as an “interactive treetop adventure” course. 2018 marked the fifth season the event took place in Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park. GO APE! has five sections of treetop obstacles that go higher as participants move along, with increasingly challenging and fun crossings, Tarzan swings, and zip lines.
