Fireworks in St. Louis: What's Still Happening This Fourth

With firework display cancellations from extreme heat and heightened fire risk, plan to visit one of these Fourth of July celebrations still planning on a fireworks show.

A long list of Independence Day fireworks celebrations have been advised to give the pyrotechnics the boot this year and cancel. While some have been postponed or rescheduled, chances are immediate holiday plans are being shuffled.

To help you plan or replan how to enjoy the holiday, here's a list of St. Louis-area fireworks shows still on -- for now, at least. Patch will keep this post updated through the Fourth:
