Visit Maryland Heights had Great 2017 Holiday Events

Visit Maryland Heights invites the public to explore a comprehensive list of the best holiday events in the Maryland Heights area that they had in 2017. As always during the holiday season,  many folks looked for the best places and events to spend time with friends and family and found that there were events hosted at a number of locations, including Westport Plaza, The Playhouse at Westport, Companion Bakery, O’Fallon Brewery, and Hollywood Casino.


Visit Maryland Heights is an organization aimed at promoting all of the excellent events and amenities that the city of Maryland Heights and St. Louis has to offer. Maryland Heights was incorporated in 1985 and has since grown to become a prominent township of the bigger St. Louis city area. Maryland Heights is home to over 27,000 residents making it a top place for work and play. Maryland Heights is home to over 1600 businesses and almost 4,000 hotel rooms. The region also boasts several parks and places of interests including Creve Coeur Lake, Westport Plaza, and the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre.


Last year, Visit Maryland Heights announced the best holiday events in the area. The holiday season kicked off with Santa visiting Westport Plaza on Saturday, December 2nd from 10am-Noon. The event took place on the second floor of the Indoor Mall. The holiday celebrations at Westport Plaza continued with carriage rides on Saturdays from 6:30-9:30 p.m. throughout the month of December and then it was beautifully wrapped up with a spectacular New Year’s Eve event. Companion Bakery also hosted a breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 17th which was full of delicious food and Christmas fun.


Many people decided to end the year with a bang, at the Boot Scootin’ New Years Eve party at Hollywood Casino on December 31st. There, they enjoyed drinks, live music, a live DJ, and a midnight toast. This crowd brought in the New Year with their friends.
