“This is a wonderful holiday event!” said Co-Chair Dave Cook. “Finger Lakes children, parents, families and friends love it as they not only get a chance to ride a train, but they get to meet Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus and listen to Santa’s singing elves. Kids of all ages come home with big smiles on their faces and the youngsters get a keepsake ornament, a coloring book, crayons and candy canes.”

Food and beverages will be available for purchase on the trains.
