Flooding Causes Changes to Live OnOff the Levee

Posted By on Wed, Jun 18, 2008 at 10:52 PM

From a press release received today:

Due to the flooding of the Mississippi River , Fair Saint Louis*LIVE on the Levee announced today that it will relocate the event to the Soldier’s Memorial area in downtown St. Louis . Fair Saint Louis and LIVE on the Levee are usually held on Leonor K. Sullivan Blvd. along the river levee. The street is currently underwater. While the river is expected to crest this weekend, it is not expected to ebb until mid-July.

“As residents of a river city we are this year reminded that we celebrate on her banks at her convenience -- and this summer it is not to be. After extended conversation with the Corps of Engineers, city safety officials, our board and our sponsors, Fair Saint Louis*LIVE on the Levee will this summer become Live OFF the Levee,” announced Fair Saint Louis Foundation Chairman John Stupp.

The Live OnOff the Levee schedule is here.
