ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Fair St. Louis is going to be a completely different experience this year because the fair will be held in Forest Park. Officials are hoping for people to come to Forest Park and enjoy the fair but because of the change, parking prices at the zoo will increase.
Admission to to the zoo will still be free, but for those who park in the north and south lots, parking will increase from $15 to $30. The increase may push a lot of people to park in residential neighborhoods, so those who live near Forest Park should be prepared. Between July 3rd through 5th, almost all of the attractions will be open from 8a.m. to 8p.m. and the Lakeside Cafe will stay open until 10p.m. The zoo entrances will remain open until 11p.m. for people who park in the zoo lots.
