Irvine Regional Park Christmas Train

The Irvine Regional Park has its annual Christmas Train again. It is running Dec. 3-5 and Dec. 10-23. Here is the information given from the OC Parks website.
It’s 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 you off at Santa’s Village. While waiting to meet Santa, you may purchase coffee, hot chocolate, freshly- popped popcorn and cookies from our Elf House Snack Bar to warm you up. A full kitchen menu is also available at the Train Station. While meeting with Santa, children can tell Santa their Christmas wishes or print and fill out a wish list to share with Santa. For a Christmas wish list that children can print, click here. Visitors may take their own pictures with Santa or you may purchase a picture taken by Irvine Park Railroad for $10. Each 5” x 7” photo will be presented with an Irvine Park Railroad border and available for pickup shortly after being taken. 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 the station house. When visiting the Christmas Train, remember to dress warmly, bring your camera and film, and arrive early to avoid crowds. To purchase tickets online, click here.
