The 2018 JB Blast will take place this year at dusk on Tuesday, July 3, at Jefferson Barracks Park, 345 North Road.
Admission is free. The event will kick off with County Executive Steve Stenger singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at 7 p.m. Stenger sponsors the celebration, as he once did as the 6th District councilman.
The JB Blast also will feature music under the stars from The South Side Johnny Band. Concessions will be for sale and food trucks will be on site.
The grand finale is, of course, the fireworks display to celebrate our nation’s birth. The fireworks will light up the sky after dark, roughly around 9 or 9:30 p.m.
