BELLEVILLE, Ill. – It seems this is the first official weekend of the holiday season with the kickoff of several displays through the St. Louis metro area. A few million lights will illuminate tonight with several displays kicking things off this evening.
Anheuser-Busch flipped the switch on its own brewery holiday lights at 5 p.m.
Meanwhile, the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows kicked off its Way of Lights at 5 p.m. The display focuses on the birth of Christ and runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly. It’s a free event but there are other displays here; food and carriage rides are available at a cost.
Also, the Garden Glow at the Missouri Botanical Gardens begins tonight for special members-only and Saturday for the general public.
