The Celebration continues through the Christmas Holiday season with the Celebration of Lights and Winterland Express. We have added more lights and fun for you and your family to enjoy.
The Winterland Express train runs every evening from November 23rd – December 30th (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) from 6-9 p.m., Sundays – Thursdays, and from 6 – 10 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays. Ride the train thru the park, enjoy over 250,000 Christmas lights, make s’mores and more.
Admission to the park and viewing of the lights is free; tickets to ride the train and carousel are $2 per person per ride.
Again, this year, kids of all ages will be able to visit Santa in his studio each night. You are welcome to take a free photo with Santa. The park will also feature performances from our very own Kannapolis Singing Bears, who will your family entertain with a Christmas Carol performance.
On various nights local community groups and musicians will perform your favorite Christmas songs. Children will also have an opportunity to create ornaments and engage in the children’s zone.
