Hard to believe it's that time of the year already. I remember as a kid time went by so slowly, is it just me or do they seam to just fly by now?!? It's become a yearly tradition for us to celebrate seasonal holidays at the Irvine Park Railroad. From Easter to Halloween and our favorite Christmas, this annual event really gets you into the holiday spirit! I'm so happy to share with you all the magical details that await you and your family at this years event and with the generous support of the park I'm also hosting a giveaway to the Christmas Train.

‘Tis the season for Irvine Park Railroad’s annual Christmas Train. Bring your family and friends and take this enchanting night time ride through the historic Irvine Regional Park to meet Santa Claus. The festively decorated train departs from the train station and drop passengers off at the North Pole. Children can share their wish list with Santa and have their photo taken with him too. You may take pictures with your personal camera or you may purchase a photo taken by Irvine Park Railroad.

After your visit with Santa, hop back on the train to enjoy even more colorful Christmas lights and decorations as you make your way back to Santa's Village which includes a special trip through the magical “Tunnel of Lights”. To finish it off you will be greeted with a light flurry of snow before arriving at the train station.
