Giveaway: Irvine Park Railroad {Christmas} Train 2013

+
Disclosure: I was given tickets for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
It is that time of year again when the Irvine Park Railroad decks the train and 
Santa arrives for the 18th annual Christmas Train!!!!
There is something special about twinkle lights, trees, and a train that takes you to Santa.
It makes me feel like I am a kid riding on the Polar Express.
It's just magical!

And the Christmas Train isn't just for Christmas adoring adults, the kids love it too!
We love having this Christmas tradition with the kids and I love to see how excited they are to visit with Santa and share their Christmas wishes.

Some helpful tips you'll want to remember when coming to ride the Christmas Train:
  • BUY YOUR TICKETS ONLINE! This is the only way to purchase tickets this year. It's a new policy, so be sure you purchase ahead of time ONLINE and don't show up empty handed.
  • Bring your camera. There are so many photo opps! You get to take pictures with Santa and you can take your own or purchase the photo taken by the Irvine Park Railroad Staff.
  • Dress warmly! It can get chilly and the North Pole and you don't want to be left shivering. So be sure to dress in layers and don't forget a your scarf.
  • Arrive early so you can avoid the crowds and have plenty of time for fun!

One of my favorite parts of the evening is the twinkle lights tunnel.
It is so cool! I could drive through it over and over again.
My friend Kara Noel's husband snapped this picture of Isabella and I riding
through the tunnel at lightning speed last year!
Remember to bring your camera to snap pictures and jackets to keep warm.

And because the people at the Irvine Park Railroad are so awesome,
they are giving me a Christmas Train prize package for me to giveaway to one of my readers!

I have never ridden the Christmas train. I know...totally deprived. If I win, I'm most looking forward to seeing the huge smile on my Little Duder's face. He loves everything trains and Christmas.
