A Fourth of July River Bash
Get a front-row seat to Fourth of July fireworks on the St. Louis Riverfront and celebrate Independence Day at the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch’s “Red, White & Brews: A Fourth of July River Bash” on Sunday July 4! This rocking summer soiree will take place on the riverboat dock from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
