In case you forgot, it’s July! This Wednesday (aka Fourth of July) begins the first concert in the Fair St. Louis Summer concert series! And who better to start it off than Heart. What About Love, Alone, Barracuda…I mean who doesn’t love Heart?!
The festival begins on July 4th this year so that means….we’re less than one week away from Fourth of July fireworks! And since almost everyone else cancelled their fireworks shows due to our dry, hot weather, Fair St. Louis is THE place to be!
