Summer Fun Guide: Why We Love July Fourth in STL

Article excerpt

The Fair St. Louis Air Show. Its very existence is cause for celebration. Budget cuts have grounded the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force's Thunderbirds as well as other touring military jets. Fair St. Louis, however, includes a variety of professional performers.

The music lineup at O'Fallon (Mo.) Heritage & Freedom Fest. Fair St. Louis gets all the attention, but the Heritage & Freedom Fest frequently makes better, even more daring, lineup choices. Not to be missed this year: country star Jack Ingram on July 3 and high- energy rock act Cowboy Mouth on July 4.

The view from Confluence at Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower. Located in Hartford, the tower offers great views of fireworks displays in Alton (July 3), Granite City (July 4) and Grafton (July 5). Enjoy the spectacle from 50, 100 or 150 feet up.

The steaks at Webster Community Days. A tradition for 87 years, the Lions Club of Webster Groves will grill up juicy ribs, brats, steaks, chicken and rib tips.
