Ice skating, holiday lights and music, cozy igloos, sweet s’mores and fireworks – now THAT’s a way to enjoy winter! All this and more is happening during Winterfest in downtown St. Louis.
The six-week Winterfest celebration is going on now in the shadow of the Gateway Arch in Kiener Plaza on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from now through January 2nd, offering activities for all ages.
Kids will enjoy ice skating, visits from popular princesses and superheroes, and toasting s’mores over a fire pit. There are even “Try Hockey for Free” events for 4–9-year-olds, courtesy of the St. Louis Blues (advance registration required). Adults can sample festive beverages and foods while they cozy up to their honey in a heated igloo. And everyone will be wowed by the spectacular fireworks show on New Year’s Eve.
(While you’re at Winterfest, be sure to stop by JNPA’s newest shop, nestled within the new Kiener Plaza Visitor Center.)
This sixth annual Winterfest is produced by the Gateway Arch Park Foundation in partnership with the St. Louis Blues. For more information on activities and hours, click here.
