Unique Christmas-themed Train Ride
If you’re looking for something unique for your holiday travel, consider the Napa Valley Wine Train with its special Santa Train. It’s a Christmas-themed train that’s great for families that travels through the scenic areas of Napa Valley with a bunch of fun activities and snacks for everybody to enjoy.
It’s not just the children that will enjoy this train ride with its hot chocolate, baked cookies and singalongs – parents will have fun too. Passengers can partake in the holiday-themed musical trip with the Santa conductor at the helm with his sidekicks helping Jolly the Bear return to the workshop to get things done in time for Christmas. At the end of the trip, the kids will be provided a Jolly the Bear ornament for their special help.
The Napa Valley Wine Train comes together with the Community Action of Napa Valley Food Bank, encouraging its guests to bring with them boxed or canned foods to provide to the Food Bank. 100 Tickets will be donated to the local foster children of the Napa County Family & Foster Parent Association.
Napa Valley Wine Train Co-CEO Scott Goldie said the Santa Train offers up an array of cheer during the holiday season, and they look forward to seeing both locals and out-of-towners take part in the extraordinary experience. He said the program is excited for its partnership with the Food Bank and to support the community.
