Way of Lights 2023

GtwLUG is thrilled to announce that we will once again be displaying seven days per week this holiday season at The National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows as part of the Way of Lights activities.  We will once again be located in the Visitor’s Center.  This is our premiere annual event and a great time to celebrate the holidays and see some great LEGO displays of all sizes and themes!

Hours and directions, as well as a few photos from last year’s display, are below.  Note that we are not opening at the same time as the rest of the lights this year in order to give us ample time for setup.

November 24th – December 23rd, 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM
(closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Day)

Tickets are $5 for Adults and children 4 and over (children 3 and under are free).  Tuesday night is family night, and tickets are only $4.  Monday night veterans and active service military members can also get tickets for $4.

Greater St. Louis Metro Area Train Show 2023

It’s been awhile since Gateway LUG got back to our roots: a good old model train show.  We’re pleased to be displaying at the Greater St. Louis Metro Area Train Show for the first time in its new location: the Meramec Community College Gym in Kirkwood.  We’ve got lots of trains, and no two layouts we do are ever the same.

See here for flyers and additional information.  Adult admission is $10 at the door, and kids 12 and under are free!
