Since 2004, families have been arriving in their pajamas and taking a unique train ride from the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad’s depot in Boone to the “North Pole.” For many, it has become a yearly holiday tradition.


On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from Nov. 24 through Dec. 17, families may once again make the roundtrip journey from the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad’s depot to the “North Pole.” En route, passengers will hear the story of Santa’s Scenic Valley Ride, sing holiday songs and take part in other fun, family activities.


Also on board, passengers will be served hot chocolate and a cookie, and will get the chance to meet and receive a special gift from Santa himself.


Tickets are available for purchase online at www.bsvrr.com or by phone at 800-626-0319.
