Grant’s Farm holiday lights open Friday


For only the second time in its 67-year history, Grant’s Farm in St. Louis is welcoming the public to drive though the park for a holiday lights display.

This year, “Holiday Lights at Grant’s Farm” includes a sight never before experienced by visitors to the farm: the Busch Family Estate House, all aglow in festive lights and decorations.

Visitors will start off with a view of “Inspiration Hill,” with a scene of the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales. They will drive past the Tiergarten, which will be transformed to look like the North Pole where guests can view a variety of animals there. Then they will drive through a brilliant light tunnel on the way to the Busch Family Estate House. From there, visitors will view a magnificent, 50-foot illuminated tree and the grand finale at the farm’s historic Main Gates. To enhance the experience, guests can tune in to holiday music on a special FM station. 

The drive runs from Nov. 19 to Jan. 2 at 5:30 – 9 p.m. and is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and day and New Year’s Eve. Grant’s Farm is located at 10501 Gravois Road, 63123.

Vehicles with children will receive candy canes. In addition, guests are welcome to upgrade their experience with a festive bundle that includes — two plush dalmatians, four waters or sodas, holiday kettle corn and a Grant’s Farm ornament. Additional plush Clydesdales are available for $12 each.
