Off the beat: Will Fair St. Louis fireworks be as good in new venue?

July 2, 2014 

The change of venue for this year's Fair St. Louis will mean some changes to one of the event's main attractions – the fireworks.

The will be best visible from Art Hill. And organizers have put a lot of effort into making sure this year's display is just as good as it has been in year's past, under the Arch. The change presented a number of challenge, since the space is smaller than the riverfront, and there are noise-sensitive neighbors, including animals at the zoo. So, organizers downsized the display but made it more artistic. They moved the audience closer to the fireworks.
