Festivals and Events
Long Real Estate’s Breakfast with Santa! – Of course the #1 thing on our list for this Christmas is our very own Breakfast with Santa. We hope we’ll see you there!
Crown Center Ice Terrace – This is an annual tradition for many people – if it isn’t for you, maybe this could be your first year. There’s nothing that will inspire Christmas spirits more than falling on your rear on the ice with a great view of the Mayor’s Christmas Tree. It’s open from now until New Year’s.
Christmas in the Park – On the Missouri side at Longview Lake Park, you can find over 300,000 lights in the form of a drive-thru winter wonderland.
Strawberry Swing Indie Craft Fair – If you’re looking to buy some locally made Christmas presents, check out the 4th annual Holiday Swing downtown – but take note this event is this weekend only December 5th and 6th!
Downtown Dazzle – Enjoy many of the downtown events and photo ops while taking free trolley rides courtesy of Google Fiber.
