yay!!!! guess what opens this weekend?
tis the season, once again, for Irvine Park Railroad’s Annual Christmas Train. come with family and friends and take this enchanting night ride through historic Irvine Regional Park to meet Santa Claus. the train will depart from the brightly-lit 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 visiting with Santa, hop back aboard the train and enjoy the colorful Christmas lights and decorations, as well as the magical “tunnel of lights”, on the ride back to Santa's Village.
