Families are encouraged to assemble at the train station in each community to welcome Santa as the train pulls into town. At each stop, Santa and his friends will greet all of the children, hearing their lists for special Christmas wishes. After visiting with Santa, families can enjoy refreshments, live entertainment and special activities.  The Santa Train and its crew will be available for photo opportunities at each station. All activities are free. Train rides for the public are not available at this event.
