Lately my 2 year old son has two favorite words, “ho-ho” and “choo-choo!” That’s why I am so excited to have the opportunity to take him on his very first train ride this year with a special guest, Santa Claus!
If your children are super excited when they catch a glimpse of the Santa, and love all things trains, well, the VRE’s got just the ticket for you, literally.
Here’s the scoop:
At 9am, on Monday, November 28th, the VRE will begin selling tickets for “Operation Lifesaver Santa Trains.” They can either be purchased online at www.vre.org OR in person at the Fredericksburg Visitors’ Center on Caroline Street. Please note that a max of six (6) tickets can be purchased per person. In addition, the Visitors’ Center will only accept CASH or CHECK.
Plus, our Fredericksburg train station will become a drop-off location for the Marine Corps’ “Toys for Tots” Campaign. you can bet that on the way onto the train, my little guys’ll have an unwrapped present in hand ready to drop-off.
Here’s a listing of train times for the Saturday, December 10 pick-up at the downtown Fredericksburg train station.
