ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - The threat of heavy rains and lightning forced event organizers to delay the start of Fair St. Louis on its second day. The gates opened at 4 p.m. Sunday and the first performance from New Orleans-based band Cowboy Mouth began at 5 p.m. Eddie Money and Sammy Hagar also performed.

Steve Pozaric, General Chairman of Fair St. Louis 2016, said all of Sunday's scheduled musicians were excited to play in St. Louis, particularly Hagar.

"When we told (Hagar) we might have some weather he was really, really bummed about a potential issue with the show," said Pozaric.  "(Hagar) was willing to move his time up if we had a weather window. He was willing to play at noon if that's when he could play because he wanted to play and do a free show for St. Louis."

The rain cleared up before Hagar took the stage, and fans filled Art Hill to watch his performance.

The Enterprise Rent-a-Car/Edward Jones Fireworks show followed Hagar's performance.

Fourth of July festivities at Fair St. Louis begin at 1 p.m. Monday.
