ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - Gateway StormFest is back. This year the event is being held on Saturday, May 6 at the Saint Louis Science Center. The OMNIMAX® Theater film "Extreme Weather" will kick off the event.
The cost of the film is $5 per person for StormFest attendees, half off the regular price. There will be two showings at 11 a.m. and noon. Everyone will have a chance to meet the FOX 2/News 11 meteorologists before the presentations. Around 1 p.m., after the noon movie, everyone will gather in the StormFest area for the main event, weather presentations from our meteorologists about the extreme weather our area has seen in recent months. The meteorologists will then take your questions about all things weather. The event will wrap up around 2:15 p.m.
As in past years, we will have giveaways and the chance to win attendance prize bags. Seating for each film is limited to 300, so get your ticket today. See the schedule below, then click the link to get your tickets to your preferred showtime.
