   St. Louis' Burnin' Love festival at Forest Park will be held on what's expected to be the warmest day of the year so far.  

   The outdoor festival celebrating the Gateway City's 250th anniversary had originally been set for Friday night, Valentines Day, but had to be rescheduled because of bitter cold and icy conditions at the venue.  

   The event will now be held Tuesday evening at the top of Art Hill.  

   Festivities will include music, food, fire dancers, video presentations and a World Record attempt.  More than 300 St. Louis couples plan to get engaged, or re-engaged simultaneously.  There will also be special activities for the kids.  

   The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and caps off with fireworks at 9:15.

   For the first time ever, Fair St. Louis won't be held on the Arch grounds next year.  Work on a $380 million plan to improve the downtown area around the Gateway Arch will get in the way.  

   Mayor Slay's office confirms the fair will have to move, but won't say where.  But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that it will likely be held in Forest Park.  

   The paper quotes St. Louis parks director Gary Bess as saying that he was told to plan for the event near the Grand Basin in Forest Park.

   A formal venue announcement is expected in late October.
