Santa is Coming to Crestwood, December 3rd

On December 3, 2022, Santa is Coming to Crestwood!
Plan to join us for an afternoon and evening of holiday fun and giving!

Winter Wonderland and Kids Workshop

2019 Winter WonderlandIn 2019, hundreds of families delightfully walked through Santa’s Winter Wonderland.

This year, Santa’s Winter Wonderland is back! Once again, hosted at St. Raymond-St. Elizabeth Church, inside the gymnasium, families find themselves immersed in fun and Christmas cheer.

Brought to you in part by the generous Crestwood Business Community, the magic includes fun activities and give-aways for kids, face painting, clowns, raffles, treats, and snapshots with Santa!

This is a great way to start December, be jolly, and make great family memories. Be sure to bring your camera.

Enjoy the caravan of fun from your front yard or along a nearby street.

Route Map Coming in November



The evening will be topped off with a spectacular fireworks display by Brilliant Skies Fireworks, sponsored by Tom Streib and Streib Company at 6:30 in the St. Raymond-St. Elizabeth Church ball field. Pick your favorite vantage point in Crestwood to enjoy a spectacular show while still appropriately social distancing.

Viewing the Fireworks:
We want everyone to be safe (and warm) while viewing the fireworks. If the St. Raymond-St. Elizabeth parking lot fills up, there are several additional parking locations in Crestwood where you can safely park and view the fireworks from your vehicle including:

  • City Hall
  • Crestwood Elementary School
  • Kohls
  • Schnucks/Woodard’s
  • and we have heard the very end of Watson Industrial Park is a good viewing spot

Special thank you to Brilliant Skies Fireworks for their bright and cheerful pyrotechnics again this year.
