Santa Train

December 1, 2018, 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm


All Aboard for an eventful ride filled with games, stories, singing and treats – and a surprise visitor.  The train leaves from the Clarendon Hills Train Station at 1pm and heads north (of course) toward the North Pole (Aurora Train Station). Once we arrive we will enjoy cookie s and milk (water also avail) and await the arrival of Santa Claus before we head back home. Santa will travel back with us to have time to visit with families for pictures. Every child receives a special git from Santa. This is a very popular event and fills quickly.  All ages. under 12 months free.   Clarendon Hill residents only.
