There’s nothing South St. Louisians like better than an old fashioned street festival. So warm up your washer-throwing arm, lace up your running shows and head down to SOHA’s (South Hampton’s) Macklind Days.
Now in its third year, this annual event was started to showcase and promote local businesses during a family-friendly, neighborhood festival. The fun kicks off with one of the area’s most unique races, The Macklind Avenue Mile. With over 1,500 runners in 2011, this downhill run is the area’s largest one-mile road race.
