Trade in sugary candy for healthy exercise! Bring leftover Halloween candy to The Lodge of Des Peres on Nov. 2 and receive a free youth admission and waves swim session in exchange for one pound of candy. You can also use your free pass at a later time, or if you're already a member, use it to bring a friend in the future. Children 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult for the candy exchange. All candy will be donated to the USO of Missouri.
To secure your child's spot at the swim, reserve by noon on Nov. 2. Call 314-835-6150.
For ages 3 to 17.
November 2 from 4 to 8 p.m. at The Lodge of Des Peres.
