History of the Meadowlands Fair Fireworks
In 2016 a young Meadowlands volunteer firefighter, Joe Brownell, was killed in a tragic ATV accident. The fire department made a donation to the family, who returned it and asked that something be done in Joe’s memory. Joe liked fireworks and the fire department hatched the idea of honoring him with a fireworks show.
Enter the Central St. Louis County (Meadowlands) Fair.
Over the last few years, the fair board has talked about the possibility of adding fireworks to fair, but didn’t have the budget or the motivation to really get the ball rolling. When the fire department suggested a memorial show, with an initial donation in honor of Joe, we knew we had to make it happen.
We also thought that other local families would contribute to memorialize or honor their loved ones, and we were right. Within 6 weeks, we had raised enough to cover the cost of a small show. We are so appreciative of all those that have donated to honor a loved one or just because they are excited about the addition of fireworks at the fair.
There will be a banner at the fair listing the names of those being remembered/honored.
We will also include them here.
