This timelapse video of the Fair Saint Louis fireworks was filmed from Malcolm W. Martin Memorial Park, a beautiful Illinois park right across the Mississippi River from the Gateway Arch National Park.
The timeplapse condenses a 15 minute show into less than 1 minute. The music is a mixture of “Taps” and the “Battle Hymne of the Republic” that were downloaded from YouTube’s Audio Library.
The fireworks display, managed by J & M Displays, were shot from barges anchored in the middle of the Mississippi. The fireworks, presented by Edward Jones, started around 9:35 p.m. Before the fireworks start, both the Coast Guard and the St. Louis Fire Department inspect all the fireworks for safety.
