It’s the final day of Fair Saint Louis and there’s a lot of fun in store.

The festival grounds open underneath the Gateway Arch at noon. About a half hour later, the Boeing Air Show will take place. If you miss the show, no worries, there’s another one at 5 p.m.

The main acts of the night kick off at 6:30 p.m. with alternative rock band Vertical Horizon. The Flaming Lips wrap up the night with a concert at 8:15 p.m.

The Edward Jones firework show begins at 9:35 p.m.

To minimize long lines and delays:

  • Missouri riders are encouraged to use the 8th & Pine station
  • Illinois riders should use the Laclede’s Landing station

Both stations are about a half-mile from fairground entrances.
