It’s December! And while most would think: time to close up shop, buy extra coffee and hot chocolate and hibernate in my apartment until it’s Spring again, that’s not how we roll in St. Louis.
So strap on your boots, grab your warmest scarf and head out to enjoy the holiday festivities. Here are 3 great events taking place the first weekend of December in 3 great St. Louis neighborhoods:
29th Annual Cherokee Antique Row Cookie Spree
Maryland Plaza’s 8th Annual Holiday On The Plaza
Saturday, Dec 1st from 1-5pm
The Central West End kicks off it’s Annual Window Walk Event with a spectacular multi-cultural event showcasing holiday traditions from around the world. Along with CWE storefronts showing off their holiday-themed window displays and offering 20% discounts, Maryland Plaza will also be featuring performances from Bob Kramer’s Marionette’s at Bissinger’s and Vinnie the Mime, special appearance from Santa and his sleigh, and fun activities such as a petting zoo, holiday pony rides and a magical tree lighting. Admission is free for adults and $5 or an unwrapped toy for children.
Additionally, you can vote for your favorite holiday decorated storefront for the Window Walk and be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to be used at select CWE retailers. There will also be caroling, horse-drawn carriage rides, ice sculpting, fire jugglers, live music and holiday drinks and treats.
