Cannabis dispensary hosts first 420 festival in Cape Girardeau park

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – A cannabis dispensary hosted the first 420 Festival in Capaha Park in Cape Girardeau on Thursday.

For some folks, the term or date 420 may not mean much, but for dispensaries all over the nation, it means big business.

Erick Englehart, owner of Buttheads in Jackson, said he just wanted to ensure people are educated about the organic options that are available.

“We teach people about organic gardening. We make our own soil. Our soil is made from all-natural compost and it’s completely sustainable,” Englehart said. “We want to be educational as well as teaching people healthy alternatives for things.

The festival drew in a large crowd as people shopped for crafts, crystals, and plants provided by vendors. There were also facepainting and balloon animals for the kids.

 While there were plenty of natural resources available for attendees, there were also a variety of food truck and dessert tables set up throughout the park.

The Good Day Farm dispensary hosted the event. More than 10 vendors participated in the celebration.
