Winter Wonderland Walk

*** We sold over 10,000 tickets to this year's Winter Wonderland Walk within 36 hours. Though we usually are able to send wristbands out the following day, due to the large influx of orders and limited staff, we were unable to get all packets out in this timeframe. Everyone should receive their tickets by November 1. 

Be one of the first to get a sneak preview of the twinkling lights of Winter Wonderland. Dogs must be on a leash. A special visitor from the North Pole can be expected! Cameras, strollers and wagons are permitted. Desserts, hot chocolate and other beverages will be available for purchase. Limited space is available and advance registration is required. Tickets will be available for purchase on September 1, 2016. For additional information call (314) 615-8822.

We suggest entering from Manchester Road to avoid traffic to make it to your carriage ride on time.  Please allow for extra time to get to the park.

From Manchester Road: head north on McKnight Rd approximately ¾ of a mile. After you pass Old Warson Rd continue approximately 100 yards and make a left onto the McCarthy Building Company entrance way and follow the signs to the parking area. There will be a lighted road sign directing you to the McCarthy Building entrance way. You may also take Brentwood Blve. to Litzinger Road, make a left at McKnight Road and the McCarthy Brothers lot will be on your right.
