The Holiday season is just around the corner- it officially kicks off next Friday and I wanted to start it off with a Daytrippingmom giveaway. I love the Irvine Park Railroad and so do my kids. We had the opportunity to visit last year and meet with Santa Claus and we had a blast. This year to celebrate I’m giving a family 4 pack – All you have to do is leave a comment any comment with this post and you will automatically be entered to win. The contest will end this Saturday the 23rd.
Let me tell you a little about the Irvien Park Christmas Railroad.
IRVINE PARK RAILROAD’S 13TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS TRAIN
It’s the season, once again for Irvine Park Railroad’s annual Christmas Train. Come with family and friends and take the 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 Santa’s Village.
New for this year, Christmas Train tickets may be purchased in advance to board the train at 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 or 8:00 PM — get in line when it is your time to board the train. And, while waiting for your boarding time, there are many activities for children to enjoy in the Party Pavilions located next to the train station.
Story Time with Mrs. Claus
Christmas Cookie Decorating

At Santa’s Village, visitors may purchase coffee, hot chocolate, freshly-popped popcorn and cookies from the Elf House Snack Bar. A full kitchen menu is also available at the Train Station.
Visitors may take their own pictures with Santa or you may purchase a picture 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 the station house.
