ST. CHARLES, Mo. - December's first big snowfall resulted in school closings and parents having to find adventures to keep their children occupied. For many, that meant a day of sledding.
Some of those families headed to Blanchette Park in St. Charles, Missouri.
Blanchette opened in 1914 and was the first public park in the city. It's been a hot spot for sledding ever since.
Others sought out the best-known sledding hill in the metro area – Art Hill in Forest Park.
St. Louisans have been sledding down Art Hill since the 1914 World’s Fair.
But a word of caution – dress warmly as temperatures will be dropping tonight and the hills will be icing up.
