Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer the Musical

Wed., Nov. 22, 1 & 7:30 p.m.

The greatest debate of our time is not about politics, sports or even if a hot dog is a sandwich — it's which Christmas special is better, the Peanuts one or Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? In one hand, Linus van Pelt schools everyone on what the true meaning of Christmas is; in the other, Hermey the Elf uses dentistry for good. They both have their merits, but only one show is being presented live on-stage this week. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer the Musical brings the stop-motion classic to life, with Rudolph, Hermey, Yukon Cornelius and the ever-lovin' Bumble all learning that it's our differences that make us unique. Rudolph is performed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and 1 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday (November 21 and 22) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; Tickets are $23.50 to $68.50. $23.50-$68.50

Ameren Thanksgiving Day Parade

Thu., Nov. 23, 8:45 a.m.

Thanksgiving is a tough holiday to celebrate outside of the home. People expect to be feasted, and that's a tall order for a public event. The Ameren Thanksgiving Day Parade is an interesting solution to that problem, opting instead for musical floats, giant helium balloons and a baker's dozen of high school marching bands from throughout the metro area. It's a great way to start your four-day weekend, especially if you can get the kids out of the house quietly so the partner who cooks can sleep in a little bit. The parade steps off at 8:45 a.m. today at Seventh and Market streets ( and finishes with the arrival of Santa Claus, whose solemn duty it is to usher in the month of Christmas. free admission

Winterfest at the Arch

Thursdays-Sundays, 2-9 p.m. Continues through Jan. 1, 2018

Winterfest at the Arch opens the ice at 2 p.m. Saturday, November 18, at Kiener Plaza (500 Chestnut Street; The opening coincides with the Ameren Festival of Lights, which features live entertainment, the lighting of the Salvation Army Tree of Lights and a fireworks finale.

Gardenland Express

Through Dec. 24, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and Through Jan. 1, 2018, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

It's unclear exactly when the holiday season and trains became entwined. Did Santa travel by rail before he got the reindeer? No one seems to know. What is known is that trains are now a major part of the Christmas experience, from children's horror movie Polar Express to Gardenland Express at the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard; Garden staff build a G-gauge train set-up every year that wends its way through a landscape of living flora filled with houses, buildings and tiny people. The display is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily through January 1. Admission is $5 (plus regular garden admission), but free during Garden Glow evenings. $5 plus regular garden admission ($12)

Once Black Friday rolls around it's officially the holiday season, and the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard; is prepared. More than one million colored lights have been strung throughout the property in preparation for this year's Garden Glow, and now all that's needed is the crowds.
