Saint Louis Fashion Fund’s “Fashion’s Night Out” celebrated its 5th Anniversary Saturday, October 19, at Neiman Marcus in Plaza Frontenac. The event was sponsored by Edward Jones.
Co-chairs, Penny Pennington and Kristin Johnson of Edward Jones, honorary chair Diane Sullivan of Caleres and all the guests had a unforgettable evening.
Neiman Marcus put on a stunning runway show followed by a live auction conducted by KSDK’s Rene Knott. Below are some portraits of some of the guests and some general view shots.
The St. Louis Wheel is 200′ feet high located at Union Station in downtown St. Louis. Each ride lasts about 15 minutes and goes around three to four times. It’s climate controlled so no worries about which season you decide to take a ride on this massive wheel.
The Ferris wheel at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis stood 264′ feet. In 1906, it was destroyed by a controlled explosion with 100 pounds of dynamite and ultimately buried in Forest Park. There were 36 cars the size of buses that held 60 passengers each. In the 90s, Diaz-Granados, a teacher at Maryville University, attempted to dig for the Ferris wheel and actually found some of the pieces.
Do you think Forest Park will ever build a replica of the World’s Fair Ferris wheel?
