Historically, the Festival of Lights committee under the direction of Christmas in St. Louis has helped to kickoff the Christmas season in our city with a talent and music festival culminating with the Mayor turning on the holiday lights and a fireworks display in Downtown St. Louis.. The 2014 Festival of Lights will be held in the newly renovated Union Station on Saturday, November 22nd. Plans are underway to provide more talent performances, a variety of children activities, and appearances by a variety of mascots continuing in the tradition of providing a family friendly event.
The Salvation Army, a long-time partner of the Festival, will display their Tree of Lights across the street from Union Station in Aloe Plaza. Mayor Francis Slay will light the majestic tree along with the fireworks display at dusk. Plans are underway for food trucks to join the festivies around the plaza and there will be an appearance by Santa who is arriving by train at Union Station.
