Celebration of Lights & The Winterland Express
Celebrate the holidays in a safe and healthy way with the City of Kannapolis! From Nov. 20-Dec. 30, enjoy over 250,000 dazzling lights and fun for the whole family at Village Park. Admission to the park and viewing the lights is free.
The Winterland Express train runs every evening, Nov. 20-Dec. 30 (closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve & Christmas Day) from 6-9pm on Sundays-Thursdays, and from 6-10pm on Fridays-Saturdays. Reserve a row on the train for $6, ride through the illuminated park and count down the 12 Days of Christmas as you view unique holiday light displays!
Favorite activities return this year! Make s’mores around the fire pit and listen to the Singing Bears perform, then visit Santa for a free, socially-distanced photo.
COVID health guidelines are followed at each activity location. Masks, social distancing and hand washing are required.
