You can find the full lineup for upcoming concerts, movies and firework displays here.
Webster Groves Reverse Parade: The carnival and fireworks are on hold for now but the community can still participate in the city’s “at home” parade. Businesses and groups in Webster Groves are invited to build floats, but they will remain stationary and will be displayed in front yards and in front of businesses. Applications are due on June 30 for inclusion. Entries will be judged from photos submitted by July 3 at 8 a.m.
Stay safe, and Happy 4th of July, St. Louis!
