Irvine Park RR Christmas Train Tickets On Sale Now Plus Giveaway

The Christmas Train is Coming to Town!

Irvine Park Railroad brings back our favorite Train Ride to Santa for it's 21st year. 

We are always so excited to take the train to Santa each year. This has become one of our most favorite traditions. Inside the Rail Road park there are games, treats, story time with Mrs. Claus and so much more for the kids young and older to do. 

My kids have different favorites each year as they get older. I am curious to hear what their favs are this year too. 

I love that I can see my kids playing, laughing, running around and celebrating festive Holidays where I too spent a lot of my childhood. 


When we are all together in places my parents used to take me when I was younger I feel my heart most full, both of nostalgia and the Holiday Spirit, love it!
