Forget your video games, iPads and whatever electronic amusement devices were invented in the time it took you to read this far: If you want to have some good, cheap fun, look for a carnival. Hey, here's one now. Luehrs' Carnival set up its rides and midway in the parking lot of St. Louis Mills Mall (5555 St. Louis Mills Boulevard, Hazelwood; 314-227-5900 or Thursday, April 22, and the old-fashioned fun continues every day through Sunday, May 2, barring bad weather. Nobody has invented an app that replicates the Ferris wheel, and you'll never in a million years find a real cotton candy tornado online. Admission is free, and ride tickets are $1.50 each or sixteen for $20. Word to the wise and thrifty: Stop by the guest services desk near the mall's Neighborhood 2 and grab coupons worth $2 off a family sheet of carnival rides.
