The Santa Express

December 1 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Bring the family, and enjoy a ride from the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad’s depot to the North Pole (and return). En route, you will hear the story of Santa’s Scenic Valley Ride, sing songs of the season, and take part in other fun, family activities. Also on board, you will be served a sweet treat, and children will get to meet (and receive a special memento from) Santa himself. Experience what has become a tradition for families from across Iowa, and beyond.
