Santa on the Train- a Fresno to Hanford and back again
Sorry this is last minute, if you can't make it, at least you can plan for it next year!
This is the message from the Facebook event.
Bring the kids to meet Santa at the Amtrak San Joaquins Station in Downtown Fresno on November 25! Santa will arrive at 10am for photos, hot cocoa and cookies. Then, go on an adventure with Santa on Amtrak San Joaquins!
You can board the 710 southbound train with Santa at 11:44am – you will arrive in Hanford at 12:19pm!
You can head with Santa to the Hanford Carnegie Museum to light the Christmas tree, too!
If you bring a can of food with you, you'll get a free photo with Santa! Santa will be at the Hanford Carnegie Museum until 2pm.
Look for Amtrak San Joaquins & Santa at the Downtown Hanford Christmas Parade at 6pm!
Make sure you purchase your tickets for the 710 southbound train at amtraksanjoaquins.com - this is the train Santa will be on.
