Fair Saint Louis Gives Back
The Fair St. Louis Foundation has donated numerous gifts to the St. Louis community over the years, including the lighting of the Eads Bridge, the Mississippi River Overlook and the mile-long Riverfront Promenade. The Foundation also partnered in providing the Grand Staircase, which connects Gateway Arch National Park to the St. Louis Riverfront.
