11/24- 12/30 Kirby Family Farm's Christmas Express
You’ll get to see Christmas lights like you’ve never seen before as you take the 20-minute journey around the Kirby Family Farm property on our authentic, narrow-gauge historic locomotive. But The Christmas Train is so much more than a train ride! The Christmas Express is a wonderful holiday event that runs on select nights in November and December. There is lots of activities to see and do, and we recommend at least 2-3 hours for the entire Christmas Express experience.
The highlight of the evening is a featured train ride through thousands and thousands of Christmas lights pulled by our old-fashioned locomotive, one of only three just like her still in operation in the world! Enjoy more activities and amusement rides, a ride on the farm’s imported Italian carousel, live entertainment, free visit with Ol’ Saint Nick, and great food too! It's sure to become part of your family's Christmas tradition!
