4th of July Happenings In and Around Crestwood

Can you believe it is already the middle of summer? Seems like we were just shoveling snow and complaining about the cold weather and now here we are planning backyard barbeques and scoping out the best spots to view 4th of July fireworks. This year since the 4th falls on a Friday, you have a nice long weekend to get out and enjoy all the great family friendly events in and around the Crestwood area.

  • Come participate in America’s Biggest Birthday Party: the Fair Saint Louis. This year’s event is being held in Forest Park because of the City/ArchRiver construction. Festival dates are July 3rd, 4th and 5th and as always admission to the event along with the concerts and nightly fireworks are all free. This year’s musical guests include Bonnie Raitt, The Fray and The Band Perry.
  • Head down to the St. Charles riverfront and enjoy Riverfest 2014. This three day celebration at Frontier Park includes a parade, great fireworks, carnival rides, fantastic summertime food and a wide selection of live musical acts including the renowned Air Force Band of Mid America Concert Band.
  • Community Days at Webster Groves is such a huge event it takes four days to get all the fun in!  The event gets underway on Wednesday, July 2nd and includes a great fireworks display on both Friday and Saturday nights. Their traditional 4th of July Parade kicks off at 10AM Friday and will feature classic cars, marching bands, floats, clowns and more.
  • For those of you just wanting to enjoy fireworks the cities of Bridgeton, Ferguson and Florissant will all be hosting displays on the evening of the 4th.

Ellis Dental would like to remind everyone to please be safe over this upcoming long 4th of July weekend. Remember, don’t leave backyard grills unattended, fireworks are illegal and always use a designated driver if you plan on drinking.
