Rain didn’t stop South County from enjoying the 20th year of the JB Blast at Jefferson Barracks Park Wednesday, July 3, 2019, featuring live music, an appearance from County Executive Sam Page and a fireworks show.

Fourth of July traditions like the JB Blast and Fair St. Louis are postponed or canceled this year, but drive-in fireworks will provide some options for those wanting to still see a dazzling display in the sky this weekend.

A new summer tradition in South County is also set to kick off with the highly anticipated opening of 9 Mile Garden, the food truck garden in Affton.

But keep in mind that masks will be required in public spaces starting July 3 in St. Louis County and the city of St. Louis.

Where to see fireworks this year: 

Powerplex in Hazelwood will host the Drive-In St. Louis fireworks.

The Gateway Grizzles are also hosting drive-in fireworks at the Sauget stadium.

And if you’re looking for past fireworks traditions, most of the annual shows in the area have been postponed or canceled:
