Halloween returns to the Gateway Arch! The tallest monument in the U.S. will host its annual “Frights & Heights” event, sponsored by Arsenal Credit Union, on Oct. 14.
Event attendees are encouraged to wear their best costumes and participate in various Halloween-themed activities. Trick or Tram will offer spooktacular sights on the ride to the top of the Gateway Arch. The ghosts of Dick Bowser, Meriwether Lewis and others will entertain audiences with living history performances. And a puppet show will describe Lewis and Clark’s journey west, including some scary true stories from the trail.
Families can enjoy freaky face painting, boo-loon animals, creepy crafts, mesmerizing music and not-so-scary stories throughout the evening. Every child will also receive a free one-hour St. Louis Riverfront Cruise ticket from the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch, which will be good for the 2024 cruise season.
General admission to the family-friendly Halloween party is free, but advance registration is required. Tram ride tickets are available for purchase with early bird discounts.
