The tallest monument in the United States will become the spookiest on October 15 during Frights and Heights at the Gateway Arch. The Arch will transform into a family-friendly Halloween party full of tricks and treats.
Kids may want to bring some jokes to collect their treats (because this is St. Louis!). Gift bags will be supplied for kids to collect candy throughout the evening. Frights and Heights includes a Trick or Tram ride to the top of the Arch, face painting, creepy crafts, balloon animals, live music with a Halloween dance party, puppet shows, freaky fudge and more.
Tickets are $21 per person for ages 3 and up. 6:30-10 p.m. on October 15.
