Celebrate St. Peters 2014
Hard to believe, but it’s already our fourth year of hosting Celebrate St. Peters at 370 Lakeside Park. This year’s celebration at the lake will take place the evening of Friday, Sept. 19, and all day and night on Saturday, Sept. 20. If you like great music, carnival rides, fireworks and tasty food, mark your calendars and join us. If it’s anything like last year, it should be another great time … and we’ll enjoy some more beautiful sunsets over the lake!
This year, the Main Stage at Celebrate St. Peters 2014 will showcase outstanding talent that we can be proud to say came from our very own Show Me State. KSHE 95 will present headliner Ozark Mountain Daredevils on Saturday at Celebrate St. Peters 2014. Enjoy southern and country rock from this Missouri-grown band that exploded in the ‘70s with songs like “If You Wanna Get to Heaven” and “Jackie Blue.” The Main Stage music begins at 7 p.m. with classic rock favorites performed by Super Jam, one of the St. Louis area’s best cover bands. Powder Mill, another Missouri homegrown band, will then open for Ozark Mountain Daredevils with their own style of southern rock and country blues.
Music lovers, you don’t want to miss the entertainment on Friday night, either. It begins on the Main Stage at
7 p.m. when young and talented local musicians from School of Rock perform legendary rock ‘n roll songs. The Chris Weaver Band will headline on Friday night with a great mix of southern rock, soul and country blues. We’re excited about this act, because Chris Weaver could be one of those up-and-coming performers that you got to see in St. Peters before he makes it really big.
We’ll also have a variety of music at the Celebrate Stage on Saturday during the day beginning at 11 a.m., with a little something for everyone.
One change this year is that we’ll have our vendor area closer to the Main Stage and the parking areas for your convenience. (Vendors used to be near the end of the festival grounds past the carnival rides). This year, you’re going to see all of the food, business and craft vendors as you enter the festival grounds. The Main Stage will still be in the marina parking lot, although in a different location a little closer to the carnival.
As always, we’ll have plenty to do for the entire family at Celebrate St. Peters. The carnival rides at our celebration are fun and affordable. You can purchase carnival ride wristband vouncers in advance at a discount at either St. Peters City Hall or the St. Peters Rec-Plex during business hours through Sept. 18. We’ll also have plenty of free activities for kids at Celebrate St. Peters. The Home Depot will let kids build at its Kids Workshop. We’ll have fun art projects for kids at Arty’s Corner. The Community News Family Stage will also offer plenty of fun family entertainment during the day on Saturday.
Your family will want to stay to see the fireworks, too! We’ll have a dazzling display over the lake after Powder Mill’s set around 9 p.m.
Parking should be at a premium at 370 Lakeside Park, especially on Saturday evening. In preparation, we’ve created as many parking spots as possible and will have free shuttle buses taking people to and from their cars throughout the event. But, if you want to make sure that you can park your car near the event grounds, we’re giving you another chance to buy a Reserved Parking Pass this year. People with the pass will be allowed to come and go to a convenient, reserved parking area throughout the event. These parking passes are on sale at City Hall and the Rec-Plex now through Sept. 19. You must buy them in advance—no parking passes will be sold at the event.
