With the Gateway Arch grounds still under construction the 2015 Fair Saint Louis festivities will be again be held in Forest Park from Thursday, July 2 to Saturday, July 4. The fair’s music lineup was announced earlier this week with Kool & the Gang, Chris Young, Blondie, Melissa Etheridge, Parmalee and Natalie Stovall and The Drive set to appear.
An estimated 250,000 people visited the park grounds last year for the fair. The popular air show will again unfortunately be absent this year. While the Federal Aviation Administration had given approval for an air show at the temporary location, it is likely the planning logistics and the cost of the air show at Forest Park led to the cancellation. Steve Pozaric has been named General Chairman of Fair Saint Louis for 2015.
The 35th annual edition of the festival will still include the nightly fireworks shows and plenty of activities in areas like the Ameren/Purina Family Festival Zone. The 133rd annual Veiled Prophet Parade will take place on Saturday morning, July 4th through Forest Park.
Here’s a sampling of the music you will hear at Fair Saint Louis 2015.
I wouldn’t be doing my duty as a St. Louisan if I didn’t also include these two St. Louis Cardinals television spots that appear to be from 1982 which feature Kool & The Gang’s “Celebration”
