Clean up underway after successful Fair St. Louis

FOREST PARK (KTVI)- Fair St. Louis 2014 is now in the history books. The three day festival took to Forest Park this year due to construction on the downtown Arch grounds.  Crews have already begun to remove the portable restrooms and remove the trash cans from Art Hill and Shakespeare Glen. The stages and large tents will come down later in the day.

Feedback from attendees has been mostly positive. Some noted that they did miss the fireworks over the river and the air show. But many said they felt there was more room in Forest Park and that they also enjoyed the addition of a water sports show on the Grand Basin.

Official have not yet announced where Fair St. Louis will be held in 2015. Work at the Arch will still be underway next summer, so there is a chance the family festival will be back in Forest Park.

For those looking to run or cycle in the park, good news. Many of the road blocks have already been taken down. Traffic should be back to normal in Forest Park by Sunday afternoon.

    You think Fair STL is going to pay to repair the damage to Art Hill? Probably not. The Fair made tons of money, while the city is out from damage to the grass, free police for security, and free city employees (paid overtime) to clean up the mess.

      Doesn’t differ from any “damage” to the Arch grounds and they’ve been doing it for years. And Fair St. Louis is hardly the first major impact event Forest Park / Art Hill has hosted in the history of St. Louis. Relax, it’ll be fine.
