Gateway Arch Park Foundation’s Winterfest is back for its eighth year from Nov. 18 through Dec. 31.
Held in Kiener Plaza, Winterfest features fan favorites such as ice skating, s’more stations and igloos positioned under 100,000 twinkling lights.
The festivities kick off with the annual Winterfest 5K and Kids Fun Run, which are the only routes through Gateway Arch National Park that support the park.
On certain weekends throughout Winterfest, the St. Louis Blues will sponsor hockey lessons, and every Friday, the sounds of holiday-themed karaoke will serenade onlookers. There will also be visits from princesses and superheroes and a family-friendly New Year’s Eve fireworks display.
Energy for all activities will come from the fantastic lineup of food trucks – plus, those 21 and older can stop by Pour Decisions for a signature cocktail.
