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:
The JB Blast is postponed to October.
Webster Groves postponed its fireworks.
Fair St. Louis was canceled this year. But Fair St. Louis is coming to you with a virtual lineup. Proud St. Louis musicians – including chart-topping hip-hop artist Chingy, rising blues star The Little Dylan Band, and country music singers Alexandra Kay and Jordan Suter – will perform during Fair Saint Louis @Home, a virtual Fourth of July celebration streaming Saturday, July 4.
