Children’s Christmas Train

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

If you have not yet had the opportunity to experience this magical event, we invite you to join us for this year’s train ride. Children’s Christmas Train riders will depart from the Emma Street Train Depot in Downtown Springdale on Saturday, December 2nd aboard a restored 1940’s era train. The 40 minute ride to Johnson and back will include singing Christmas carols, stories, and even a visit from Santa himself! After returning to the Train Depot families can enjoy holiday games and entertainment – ride ponies dressed as reindeer, operate a model train, participate in the cake walk, write a letter to Santa or just enjoy the characters and live music in Santa’s Village. Children and families are also encouraged to dress in Holiday attire.

Children 2 years of age and under do not require a ticket but will have to sit on your lap, $10 for ages 3-12, and $20 for adults. This event will sell out.

The Children’s Christmas Train is a fundraiser for the Children’s Safety Center of Washington County.
