Holiday in the Park - Six Flags St. Louis



Welcome to Six Flags St. Louis and Holiday in the Park

It is always neat when a park tries a new festival for the first time.


Let's start off with the live entertainment.
In the Empire Theatre, The Tinsletones are performing.


The Tinsletones is a singing trio.


Their show utilizes a lot of Christmas songs made popular by the Andrews Sisters.


I personally thought the show was very well done.


In the Palace Theatre is the Majesty of Christmas and yes it features live animals


The show is a retelling of the birth of Jesus and it even has a flying angel.


The show features numerous musical numbers performed by the cast.


The grand finale features one of the wisemen arriving on a live camel


Now let's take a look at the light displays around the park


Near the entrance to Boss (which is closed) is S'moresville


This very tall multi-colored tree is the focal point in this section


Cut Tree Trail is located around Xcalibur and Pademonium.


Candy Cane Forest is in Bugs Bunny National Park


They use some neat light projections on the walkways in this area


Near the Mine Train is "Big Green" the largest of the lighted trees in the park


The Backlot near Batman is Tinsel Town


The covered walkways near Thunder River is the Star of Wonder


Between the two covered walkways is this Nativity Scene


Santa's House (Meet & Greet) is taking place in the Saloon.


Winter Wonderland is in the courtyard between Mr. Freeze and Justice League.


This is near the entrance to American Thunder


At the main entrance is Christmas Courtyard


More of Christmas Courtyard


There is also a photo op with the characters in this area.


Celebration of Six Flags takes place in the middle of the park near the Palace Theatre


On the Palace steps is the Magic of Christmas Light Show


5 "trees" of lights dance to music


It is fun show that also incorporates the other lighted trees in the area.


Overall I am impressed with the park's first attempt at this festival


We will, of course, keep an eye on the event and see how it grows next season.


Until next season... Six Flags St. Louis
