Children’s Christmas Train Tickets On Sale Now!!!

Saturday, December 5th

It was like Christmas right out of Norman Rockwell,
straight into the hearts of all aboard

If you are familiar with, or have enjoyed The Children’s Christmas Train in the past, you know what an enjoyable event it is for children and their families. What you may not know is that the event raises funds to support the Children’s Safety Center.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to experience this magical event, we invite you to join us for this year’s event. Children’s Christmas Train riders will depart from the Emma Street Depot in Springdale on Saturday, December 5th aboard a restored 1940s era train. The 40 minute ride to Johnson and back will include carolers, the Christmas Story, and even a visit with Santa himself! After returning to the Springdale Depot families can enjoy holiday games and entertainment – ride ponies dressed as reindeer, operate a model train, write a letter to Santa or just enjoy the characters and puppet show in Santa’s Village. Children and families are also encouraged to dress in “ugly Christmas sweaters” and Holiday attire.

Tickets On Sale Now!!! Hurry, they WILL sell out!
