The popular North Pole Express kicks off this Saturday at Boothbay Railway Village Museum. The event will take place on Saturdays and Sundays for three consecutive weekends. The train will visit the ’North Pole’ eight times daily, with the first train departing Freeport Station at 10:45 a.m., and the last train at 4 p.m. Tickets must be purchased in advance (click here) and online at RailwayVillage.org.
Event highlights: Arrive at Freeport Station, write your letter to Santa, then board the train to the North Pole to hand deliver your letter to Santa. Return from the North Pole and head to 'Holiday Headquarters' to warm up at the Hot Cocoa Bar and make your own holiday ornament. Pick up your s’mores kit and roast it around the bonfire! Go on an elf hunt and choose your gift from under the tree! Shop at the Iron Horse Antiques + General Store, and more!
The North Pole Express event is an annual fundraiser for the Boothbay Railway Village Museum, at 586 Wiscasset Road/Route 27 in Boothbay, and all tickets purchased help to sustain present and future operations. Event volunteers are needed and very much appreciated. To sign up visit RailwayVillage.org or call 207-633-4727.
