ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- If you come to Forest Park during Fair St. Louis around the Fourth of July, you will not be able to park on any streets in the park.

This could be challenging.

Because of the renovations now going on at the Archgrounds, Fair St. Louis will be held at Forest Park this year and next year.

The traditional air show has already been canceled because of the move, now free parking in the park has been eliminated as well during the fair.

Officials telling the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that cars being parked along the streets could create a public safety hazard and prevent emergency vehicles from getting to and from the fair site.

Park goers will still be able to use the zoo parking lots to go to the zoo during the fair but it`s typically $15 a car to park in those areas.

Fair St. Louis will run shuttles from several different lots in the park to the fair site.

The Post reports that fair organizers have turned to an experienced consultant to help develop a traffic plan. Details on that should be released later this month.
