A Holiday Family Tradition – Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train | @IrvineParkRR

I love making a holiday family tradition. Since the kids have been about 1 year old, I’ve been visiting Irvine Park Railroad for all of their holiday events. This year, the Christmas Train has a beautiful new addition at Santa’s Village – A Christmas Tree Farm!

Christmas Train, Irvine Park Railroad

Wander through the Party Pavillion next to the train station, and pick out your family’s “perfect” tree for 2014. Choose among Douglas Fir, Noble Fir and Grand Fir trees ranging from 4″ to 12″.

Dreamworks Adventure To Santa

Dreamworks Adventure to Santa at Victoria Gardens

A post written by Contributor Jennifer Stinnett on behalf of Dreamworks Adventure To Santa.

Sponsored EVENT

Living in the Inland Empire we tend to travel to Orange County or LA to attend “special events”, so when I heard that Victoria Gardens was going to be the home for the Dreamworks Adventure to Santa I was thrilled beyond belief. I knew that this was a unique holiday experience that my family could not miss. Last weekend I had the opportunity to take my 5 year old daughter and her friends, ages 5 and 9 to see Santa. Instead of the long standing tradition of visiting Santa at local malls this FREE interactive Santa adventure takes you on a 15 minute unforgettable journey to the North Pole to find Santa, with Shrek and his friends leading the way. Say goodbye to standing in the traditional mall lines, families are required to make a reservation to see Santa and enjoy this special experience.
