(KMOV) – A new event kicked off the upcoming Fair St. Louis celebrations Wednesday evening.
The Veiled Prophet’s Block Party and Balloon Glow at Keiner Plaza jump-started the celebrations that will be held in downtown St. Louis this weekend.
The fair, which begins tomorrow, will showcase an array of events.
Pilots fine-tuned their planes and will take to the sky during one of tomorrow’s air shows over the Mississippi River.
The first plane to take to the sky will be the “Aluminum Overcast,” a large aircraft originally designed to be a bomber.
The bomber is one of about eight remaining of the original 13,000 built.
The air shows can be seen tomorrow at Noon and 4:00 pm.
The VP Parade kicks off at 14th and Olive tomorrow at 9:30 am.
