Get up close and personal with 300 of our courageous and dedicated military service members and their families on Tuesday, July 4th at Fair St. Louis at Forest Park. Did you know that during the recent flooding, many of these armed forces members were hard at work protecting and restoring our local neighborhoods? Here’s a first-hand opportunity for us to thank them and honor their role in keeping America safe.
Audience participants will receive American flags to wave for the Grand Salute—as the troops and their families wear special 2017 Salute to the Troops t-shirts, provided by Alliance Technologies, and parade to the stage. Following the 30-minute ceremony at 5:30 PM on the Fair Saint Louis Main Stage, the white and blue t-shirts will help the fair goers to single out these service members for personal greetings and gratitude—all contributing to one very memorable experience!
Thanks to Brigadier General (ret.) David Irwin and his wife, Karen, the Salute to the Troops is an annual event that celebrates our armed forces, primarily from Missouri National Guard, Illinois National Guard, and Scott Airforce Base. In addition to the ceremony honoring them for their service, the Fair Saint Louis Foundation will host these troops and their families to a “Four Star” experience with a dedicated VIP area for them to enjoy the day’s activities, including a catered dinner, beverages, family friendly activities, special view of the national entertainment on the Budweiser Stage, and fabulous fireworks. A Fair Saint Louis app is available for download.
Please join us on July 4th as we support those who protect our freedom every day. Alliance Technologies. LLC salutes our troops and their families and thanks them for their service to our nation.
