This week for my traditions post, I thought it would be fun to make a list of some of the holiday traditions or events that happen around Missouri. I haven’t been to all of these, but I can vouch for the awesomeness of the lights at Silver Dollar City and on the Plaza in Kansas City (and the reindeer in Chillicothe!) Have you been to any of these?
Branson – Silver Dollar City’s Christmas festival (Seeing Christmas lights from the top of a roller coaster or barn swing is pretty great)
Branson – Adoration Parade
Chillicothe – walking through the lights at Jenkins Christmas Village and seeing a live reindeer
Hollister – Santa Train at the depot
Kansas City – going to the Plaza to see the lights
Kansas City – ice skating at Crown Center
Moberly – Living Windows with performances or living displays set up in all the store windows downtown, cookie decorating, free hot chocolate, horse and carriage rides, and an appearance by Santa
Saint Charles – Christmas Traditions Festival
Saint Louis – driving through the beautiful lights at Anheuser Busch’s campus
Saint Louis – driving through the lights at Tilles Park
Springfield – Festival of Lights events throughout December
I’m sure there are many more events that I haven’t listed here. What fun or unique holiday events take place in your corner of Missouri? Where is your favorite light display?
