Celebrate the season with the new Planetarium show Seasons Greetings. Viewers will discover the nature of our seasons and why the winter solstice has long been a time of celebration. This live star show lets you gaze up to the winter sky, but also look back at how the cultures are united in celebration during the winter season and how these celestial sights still influence our holidays today.
The magical sights of the Gateway Arch Park Foundation's Winterfest return to downtown St. Louis this holiday season! Kiener Plaza will transform into a dazzling wonderland featuring more than 70,000 lights in the park's trees, complementing the breathtaking backdrop of the Gateway Arch and Old Courthouse.
Anheuser-Busch has warmly welcomed the St. Louis community for years to its holiday lights at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. For 2020, Brewery Lights is designed as a drive-thru so guests can enjoy the show from the comfort of their own vehicle.
Kids will create a miniature magical scene of winter wonderland inside a 14.5" tall wood and metal lantern with tons of awesome goodies to decorate it.
