Fair St. Louis 2013

This 4th of July, my mom and I worked at one of the beer booths at Fair St. Louis along with other Stray Rescue of St. Louis volunteers.

Naturally, I had to go patriotic with my makeup for the day.

I hadn’t been to the fair in several years, so it was pretty fun to be back as a “VIP”. Granted, the only special treatment we got was a free hot dog. But, we did get to stay out of the sun in our tent, which was in a prime location just under the north leg of the St. Louis Arch.

We were able to pop out of the tent and get some cool views of the air show.

The skydivers through the Arch have always been one of my favorite parts.

All the tips we made for the day went to Stray Rescue. I don’t know a final count, but our tip buckets were emptied three times during our 4-hour shift – so I think we did quite well!
