ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Boys and girls better be on their best behavior Wednesday night because Santa and Mrs. Claus are in St. Louis. The famous duo is here to kick off Chase Park Plaza’s Holiday Extravaganza.

This is a month long event featuring all things Christmas. Tonight is your chance to stop by and get a free photo with Santa from 5 pm until 7 pm. You can also partake in complimentary cookies and hot chocolate, all while touring the beautiful hotel lobby that has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland complete with lights and a giant ginger bread house. If you miss tonight, you still have the rest of the month to stop by for other festivities including story time and cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus. Christmas carolers will periodically perform at the hotel during the evening period the month of December. And there’s something for adults as well. Wednesday night’s adults are invited to make s’mores and have an adult beverage in the bistro.

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
