CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) - Before dawn Friday morning, crews started setting up tents for the 19th annual St. Louis Art Fair in Clayton.

Cindy Lerick is a very hands-on executive director.  She met workers and volunteers long before the sun came up.  There were moments of quiet, while organizers reviewed plans for the fair.  That quiet was broken by the clanging of metal tent supports and the roaring of truck engines.  

Workers set up temporary homes for artists, both local and international. Performers were looking forward to taking the main stage - once the stage was built.  Preps seemed to be going smoothly, following a tight schedule.  Emergency vehicles were set to park.  First responders prepared to care of any art lovers who needed medical attention.

Clayton is a bustling business district.  But, employees simply planned to find another place to park.  They are used this.  Yet again, parts of Forsyth Boulevard and Central Avenue closed to vehicle traffic.  But, Friday afternoon offered a built-in happy hour for those who worked near the fair`s epicenter.  Culinary artists were ready to move into booths, too.
