The holiday season is upon us and my family loves discovering new and fun things to do as a family in St. Louis! We were so excited to visit the Anheuser-Busch Brewery for their Holiday Lights experience!

What is the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Holiday Lights?

The Anheuser-Busch Brewery Holiday Lights Display in St. Louis is in it’s 28th year but it’s better than ever with more lights, live music, fire pits for roasting s’mores, and complimentary seasonal beer samples for adults 21 and older.

You’ll be able to enjoy walking along the grounds of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery as you view the buildings that are decorated with thousands of lights! Local musicians play holiday music and you can make sure to snap a picture of the famous Clydesdales!

What’s there to do for kids?

The Anheuser-Busch Brewery Holiday Lights Display is VERY family friendly! While there is of course beer for the adults to sample, kids will enjoy seeing all of the lights, drinking hot chocolate, making s’mores {which are $1 for one}, decorating ornaments and seeing the Clydesdales! Kids of all ages will love stepping into step into an inflatable snow globe for a unique photo opportunity.

It’s also VERY stroller friendly! We were able to push our double stroller along the streets and sidewalks with no issues.

    I would love to go to the Anheuser Holiday lights show! I think it looks like a lot of fun and is so colorful. Looks like everyone has a lot of fun! I wish I lived where you are at!

    I have been to St. Louis a lot but never at Christmas. I will have to let my daughter know about this. I think she is planning to go visit relatives in St. Louis in December.

    Oh the Anheuser Busch Brewery Holiday lights look like so much fun! We had such bad weather come in this week (especially for the south) that a lot of our events have been cancelled, but we try to get to see holiday lights as a family each year. Looks like quite a show!

    This does look like a lot of fun! It can be hard to find good out door entertainment in the colder months, its nice that they are doing this for their community :)
