The West Coast Express Santa Trains are back for its 22nd year, benefiting community toy bureaus! It’s a great kick-off to the holiday season and such a worthy cause.
Please bring your entire family and invite all of your friends on Saturday, Dec. 9 and 16, and help make Christmas brighter for kids in your community!
What makes the Santa Trains special is you get a free ticket to ride the West Coast Express in exchange for a new, unwrapped toy donation (worth about the same as a WCE pass) for your community toy bureau. It’s a great way to give to those in need in your community, and have a fun-filled day at the same time!
The Santa Train departs Mission City at 10 a.m. on Dec. 9 and 16, and stops at all West Coast Express stations along the way, arriving at Waterfront Station at 11:15 a.m. Once in Vancouver, you can enjoy a day of holiday sights and sounds before returning home from Waterfront Station at 4 p.m.
Make sure you stop by the West Coast Express North Pole Station (at Waterfront Station), beginning at 2:45 p.m., for holiday activities and a photo op with Santa! As well, our friends at Dairyland will provide a taste of egg nog while you wait for your trip home. So bring your camera and your Christmas cheer, and we’ll see you there!
