Christmas

Anheuser-Busch's Brewery Lights

When: Thursdays-Sundays, 5-10 p.m. Continues through Dec. 30

You have to give Anheuser-Busch credit: The big brewery in town has crammed more Christmas stuff than ever into its light display this year. There are the traditional lights winking from every cornice and edge of every building in the brewery complex, the return of its own ice-skating rink, a new kids' zone and brewery express train, and holiday movies shown on a big screen nightly during regular hours. If you want to experience everything the season has to offer, it's all there. Anheuser-Busch's brewery lights are on every night, but the other activities only happen from 5 to 10 p.m. Thursday through Sunday (November 12 to December 30) at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery and Tour Center (1200 Lynch Street; www.budweisertours.com). Admission is free, but train rides are $3 and there's a suggested $3 to $5 donation for skate rental. Skating is free if you have your own skates, but why not donate anyway?
