When I was a kid, I always wanted trains to be part of my Christmas experience; whether it was a model train going around the tree or a toy train for a present.

How about an actual train ride during the holidays, and have Santa join you in person? You can.

The Arcade & Attica Railroad Company is inviting people to enjoy a Train Ride with Santa.

The train ride will happen for three weeks, from December 5th to December 20th. Trains will depart at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm.

Santa will be there himself, and allow children to take photos with him. You can also meet Santa's reindeer and even mail your wish list to Santa for your must-have Christmas presents this holiday season!

Face masks will be required for all passengers above the age of 2 and social distancing will be enforced.

You can buy tickets here and children under 1 are free.

We still have about a month before the holiday season officially gets underway but it's never too early to start preparing for Christmas!
