Fair St. Louis is a cool place to go once if you like big celebrations but do not mind very large crowds and usually very warm and humid weather. The firework shows here are really the best part though and run usually at least three nights in a row. The airshows are also a big highlight. The food is simple, carnival type food, and it is fairly expensive as you might expect for an event like this. Beer is readily available. Overall, a good party atmosphere if you like that, and during the day a good place to bring the family.
