Grants Farm deal

Strictly STL here, so out-of-towners you can skip it. Well, I supposed you could drive in for it if you really want to. ;-)

We {{LOVE}} Grants Farm. We live just 15 minutes away and go numerous times during the summer. Of course we get a parking pass every year. If you did not get a pass and want to go this weekend, Grants Farm has a great deal. FREE parking! Yes, I said FREE. Normally $11 for the day, this is a huge savings.

If that's not enough, kids 10 and under will receive a hot dog and soda. If you've ever eaten in the Bauernhof you know what a deal that is.

I suspect this will be very popular aka very crowded.

When I used that coupon last week, a catalina printed for $1 off a pack of Activia, which I will use this week and send in for a free pack of Yo-Plus. Three packs of yogurt for $1 off the price of one, not bad. Is it too greedy that I'm hoping for an Activia sale this week??? lol
