The holiday season is a great time to visit Grafton and other communities along the Great River Road. Each year, Grafton celebrates the season with the Holiday Riverwalk. Shops along Main Street will be open and offering deals and free samples. Visitors can also tour many of the area's B&B's all decked out for Christmas. If you are looking to get away from crowded malls and discount stores, consider spending part of your holiday season in Grafton.

Thousands of St. Louisans will begin their Thanksgiving in downtown St. Louis at the 2013 Ameren Missouri Thanksgiving Day Parade. Watching the parade has been a tradtion for many local families for decades. Dozens of marching bands, floats, balloons and more help kick off the holiday season in St. Louis.
The parade begins at Fourth Street and Washington, then heads down Market Street to 10th Street. If you can't make it downtown, you can watch coverage of the parade live on KMOV Channel 4 from 8:45 a.m. to 11 a.m.
If you're looking for something to do after the parade, check out my article on the St. Louis Area Restaurants, Stores and Attractions Open on Thanksgiving.
