For the 8th year in a row, Travel Town Train Museum in Griffith Park will host a unique holiday event starting November 27, 2010. On seventeen evenings between Thanksgiving and Christmas, families will be able to take a miniature train ride to visit Santa at his house at the North Pole. Once they arrive they will visit with Santa, get a picture with him, if desired, then get back on the train to return home along a decorated and music filled track.

This event is operated by Travel Town Railroad in cooperation with the City of Los Angeles, Department of Recreation and Parks. It is a wonderful alternative to visiting Santa at the mall and this year will be the only Holiday light show in Griffith Park. The Department of Water and Power has cancelled its Festival of Lights for 2010.

You may buy tickets for a particular night at the Travel Town ticket booth or online at our website http://www.TravelTownRailroad.com.

We are limited to approximately 700 guests each evening so buy your tickets early to assure that you can have a seat on this special train ride. Tickets are not for a reserved time; they merely assure that you can ride the train to Santa on that date.

Starting at 5 p.m. on the evenings detailed below, families may enter the Museum and board the miniature train ride at the gaily decorated station. While waiting to board they will be entertained by a dazzling dancing light show. Once aboard, they will travel past the locomotive barn and Santa‚Äôs Workshop to arrive at the North Pole. There they will disembark and visit with Santa. Digital photographs will be available for $5.00. Families may take their own pictures(a limit of 2) if they wish. After they have finished their visit, guests will re-board the train and travel along the decorated ¼ mile of track back to the station. The Travel Town Museum Gift Shop will be open most evenings.
