Enjoy Hot Chocolate and Treats as Santa and his Elves Collect Toys for Disadvantaged Children on November 26
One and all are invited to meet up with the Christmas Train on Saturday evening, November 26 as Santa and his elves makes stops in Ventura, Santa Paula and Fillmore to collect toys for underprivileged children. The Christmas Train is a collaboration between the Sierra Northern Railway and the Sunburst train, created for a “Spirit of the Holidays Train Toy Drive.”
Attendees are encouraged to bring an unwrapped, new toy that will be loaded onto the train and later shared with a child in need. Free to all, the “Spirit of the Holidays Train Toy Drive” will offer a festive atmosphere including hot chocolate and candy canes, as well as the chance to mingle with Santa and his elves.
The train’s first stop is at 6:20 p.m. at the pedestrian crossing near Montgomery Avenue and North Bank Drive in Ventura. Here, families may bring their toys for drop-off; watch Santa’s train chug into sight; and enjoy treats and the excitement of the season.
Next, the train stops at 7 p.m. at the Saticoy Depot (11220 Azahar St,) in Ventura; then at 8 p.m. at the Santa Paula Depot (200 N. 10th St.) in Santa Paula; and, finally, at 9:15 p.m. near the intersection of Sespe Avenue and Old Telegraph Road in Fillmore (across the street from the fire station).
Each location will conjure up a joyful community gathering as local businesses and organizations come together to support this special cause.
