Friday night's opening of Celebrate St. Peters was outstanding! On the stage was the Fabulous Motown Revue which featured popular standards from the 1960s, '70s, '80s and even the '90s; ranging from the Temptations to the Supremes to the Pointer Sisters and even Michael Jackson. There were even a few disco tunes thrown in there, remembering such artists as Gloria Gaynor and Donna Summer. Parking has improved immensely and is a lot better than last year, when people were literally turned away at the height of the event. This year, even the St. Peters aldermen and Mayor Pagano had given rides to many through the venues ranging from the food and craft area to the carnival rides to the main stage. Opening night this year was sensational. We have been told that Saturday day and night will be better. Don't let us down City of St. Peters.

Thank you for attending our celebration event yesterday. Hope you have a great time again today and tonight. We'll be helping out again with the golf carts. At least one shuttle bus on Saturday will also have a wheelchair lift. I'll see everyone at our 370 Lakeside Park. Alderman Patrick Barclay

Alderman Barclay: As I told both Mayor Pagano and Alderman Violet on Saturday, the City and the Staff did a First-Class job on this year's Celebration Event. Also, a thank you to you for giving us a ride to the main stage on Saturday evening. The music was great and the events at the celebration were memorable. On behalf of my wife, Trish and my stepdaughter, Kayla, we all had a great time at this year's Celebration. Again, FIRST-CLASS JOB!
