IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the icy weather on Valentine's Day, the Burnin' Love Festival has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 18.
St. Louis is planning to celebrate its 250th birthday in a big way. City leaders are hosting special events in 2014 to mark the anniversary of the founding of St. Louis. One of the biggest celebrations is happening February 14-17. That's when the city hosts its Birthday Bash Weekend. The festivities include the Burnin' Love Festival at Art Hill and the Big Birthday Bash at the Missouri History Museum. Both events are free and open to the public.
