Tickets for Museum of Life and Science's Santa Train on sale this week
Posted November 9, 2014
Tickets for the Museum of Life and Science's Santa Train, which often sell out, go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, Nov. 11.
The 37th annual Santa Train is the museum's largest fundraising event. The evening includes a ride on the Ellerbe Creek Railway, which is decorated with holiday lights. It takes riders to the "North Pole" where they can meet Santa and his elves before heading back to the station for holiday activities.
New this year is a synthetic ice rink where kids can skate in their socks. There also will be hands-on science activities; make and take holiday crafts; face painting; hot chocolate; and a pop-up museum gift shop.
The Santa Trains runs Dec. 3 to Dec. 7; Dec. 10 to Dec. 14; and Dec. 17 to Dec. 21. Tickets are $15 for Wednesday and Thursday evenings and $20 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Tickets went on sale to museum members last week.
This is one of many Christmas events in the region that often sell out. For information about others, including Pullen Park's popular Holiday Express, check my earlier post.
