Remember that time the Kirkwood Mall flooded? The play area at the mall has been closed ever since.

Well finally, the play area is set to reopen later this month. According to an event created on Facebook by the mall, the play area will reopen on Saturday, May 20.

The reopening will feature face painting, balloon animals, free pretzel bites, and the opportunity to win free pretzels for a year from Auntie Anne's.

People also could win free coffee for a year from Caribou Coffee in the mall and free jumps for a year at Jump for Joy.

Finally a local favorite for germ spreading is returning.
