Great Weekend For Greentree Beautiful weather paved the way for a successful Greentree Parade and Festival last weekend in Kirkwood. The threeday event, held Sept. 13-15, featured the annual parade, plus entertainment, food, a variety of vendors, Folklife artisans and more in Kirkwood Park. This year’s parade theme was “The Wild, Wild West.”
