If you’re still relishing the Blues’ Stanley Cup victory, celebrate at Winterfest at the Arch, which extends its fun this time through NHL All-Star Weekend in January. How better to symbolize St. Louis spirit than by lacing up your skates in the shadow of the Gateway Arch?

The seasonal spirit isn’t all about hockey, though: Do a little Christmas shopping, and then relax with a mug of something warm at dozens of other events this holiday season.
