5 Things to Do This Month in Maryland Heights: December 2016

Tis the season! Are you looking for festive and fun things to do this December? Check out our top five jolly activities to make the most of this season!



The holidays are truly merry with two great shows playing at the Playhouse @ Westport! From now until Dec. 18th, you can bust a gut at Dixie’s Tupperware Party about an ex-con mother of three straightening out her life by selling the iconic plastic bowls in an unexpected way. And then from Dec. 27 – Jan. 1, watch Robert Dubai’s newest Off-Brodway hit in which he begins his journey with a simple question: Who am I? What do I believe? What’s the point? Okay, that’s three questions but suffice to say, he has no answers. He is then pulled into a hysterical alternative universe of critical thought in search of the bigger picture. Both December shows are fast-paced and hilarious and make a great holiday activity to do with friends!

Celebrate the holidays with carriage rides on Saturdays from 6:30-9:30 p.m. throughout the month of December (excluding Christmas Eve) all wrapping up with a spectacular New Year’s Eve event. Start your New Year’s Eve with a bang! Gather friends and family outside Westport’s outdoor village at 6pm to watch a vibrant array of colors burst into the air and bring 2017 in style. Finish up the night with carriage rides that follow the show, beginning at 6:30pm. The kids will have a ball ringing in the New Year!
