Happy Friday, everyone! Here are five things you’ll want to make sure you do in St. Louis this weekend.

A Christmas Carol – December 5 – 8
Watch “A Christmas Carol” performed at the Fabulous Fox Theatre by the Nebraska Theatre Caravan for one weekend only.

Witness the timeless Christmas tale at the Peabody Opera House with a new, dramatized perspective special to the Moscow Ballet.

Walk through a Winter Wonderland in the Central West End and kick off the holiday season in local style at the 4th Annual Window Walk Festival. This Saturday from 1 – 7 p.m. Stroll among elaborately decorated windows, enjoy live entertainment and discounts at select merchants, all away from the hustle and bustle of the mall crowds.

First Annual Crestwood “Nite of Lights – Give and Glow Celebration” – December 6
Family fun is coming to the Sappington House in Crestwood this weekend. Explore Grant’s Trail lit up with more than 350 luminaries from Big Bend to Watson Road. The Friends of Father Dickson cemetery will showcase their new historical walking tour with bright torches lit throughout the grounds of the property along with a performance from The Community Gospel Singers. The grounds of the Sappington House will be aglow with 5 bonfires and The Barn will offer complimentary hot chocolate and spiced cider on their back porch as local carolers perform holiday music and Santa Claus is scheduled to arrive via bicycle at 6:30 p.m.  6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
