Arch Celebrates Designer's 108th Birthday

August 20, 2018 - 8:45 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - It's a special day at the Gateway Arch.

If Finnish-American architect Eero Saarenin, designer of the Gateway Arch, had lived this long, he'd be turning 108 years old.

To commemorate the anniversary of the Arch designer's birth, there's a special party planned at the renovated museum under the national monument.

From 11:30 to 1:30 volunteers will be handing out a thousand cupcakes and asking guests to sign a giant birthday card.
