available beginning Sept. 5.

It was a special sight on Saturday morning, July 27, when 161 volunteers helped kick off flood cleanup efforts at 370 Lakeside Park. THANK YOU to everyone who came out to help! CLICK HERE to read about the special flood debris clean-up event and flood recovery efforts moving forward.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has reported that this year's flood surpassed the Flood of 1993 in terms of number of days over major river flooding. The Mississippi River was about 4 miles wide during the height of the flood, and in St. Peters our 370 Lakeside Park took on 1.3 billion gallons of floodwater at a height of 20 feet. CLICK HERE for more perspective on this historic flood.
CELEBRATE ST. PETERS PLANNING
Flooding didn't stop our Sunset Fridays series of concerts and it won't stop Celebrate St. Peters. While we work on flood recovery at 370 Lakeside Park, we've also developed other plans for an alternate site for Celebrate St. Peters, if necessary. Like Sunset Fridays, we planned for an "On the Road" event ... but at the same time we're working to host the event at 370 Lakeside Park. No matter if there are changes to the festival site or festival layout at the park, we are hosting our 10th annual event to "Celebrate St. Peters" and all of the great things we have to offer! We will make an announcement in the coming days about the location. All of our updates will be posted at www.stpetersmo.net/Celebrate.
