After a bitter Friday morning with temperatures as low as 18 degrees, we’ll spend the rest of the weekend warming up. By Sunday afternoon we’ll have reached a balmy 51 degrees! The sun will be out through most of the weekend, and there won’t be any snow or rain. Cool weather is here to stay, so wipe the dust off of those Winter coats, thermals and stocking hats.

Edaville: XMas Festival of Lights & Polar Express Train Ride (Military Appreciation Weekend) (2:00pm-9:00pm)
Edaville’s Christmas Festival of Lights is arguably the most-loved festival of its kind, having earned generations of loyal fans. Passengers relax comfortably in warm and dry coaches while riding through a spectacular holiday setting featuring an explosion of lights. Kids of all ages will enjoy an array of vintage amusement rides and a visit with Santa in one of our indoor play areas. Stay for a delicious full meal or enjoy seasonal treats while roaming our sprawling and beautifully decorated grounds featuring thousands of Christmas displays.

Polar Express is inspired by the run-away hit movie! This holiday favorite comes to life as you and your family take a ride on THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride. Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, families are sure to enjoy their trip to the North Pole, complete with hot chocolate and cookies served on board the train. Passengers will then be entertained by a reading of THE POLAR EXPRESS. Upon arrival at the North Pole, Santa will greet the children and each child will receive their own sleigh bell, just like in the movie, to those who BELIEVE.
