The 4th of July has been an important holiday in St. Louis for much of its history. St. Louis celebrates Independence Day every year on the first Saturday of July with the most extensive fireworks display in the area.
This year’s celebration will be held on Saturday, July 3, 2021.
The City of St. Louis and the Gratiot Area Chamber/St. Louis Middle of the Mitten Association sponsor the fireworks each year.
St. Louis High School’s Homecoming celebration is an annual event that is exciting for our citizens and visitors alike. Highlighted by a large parade on Friday night, followed by a home football game, it is another small-town tradition. A high school dance Saturday night after a week of events at the school finishes off the festivities.
