Holiday Express' history
First held in Pullen Park, Raleigh in 2007, Holiday Express has grown year on year to become one of the highlights of the holiday season. Taking place in early to mid-December, the event is held over ten days and attracts around 15,000 visitors each year. Previous Holiday Express tour dates proved extremely popular, with tickets selling out within two hours of going on sale.
Holiday Express live experience
Holiday Express offers endless entertainment for adults and children alike. From have-a-go activities, such as ornament making to holiday shows and movie screenings, visitors of all ages are sure to enjoy a memorable evening.
One of the highlights of the event is the chance to visit Santa in his grotto before he sets off around the world to deliver gifts in time for Christmas. Santa is always in high demand at this time of year, but visitors can write him a letter, play seasonal games, color in festive pictures and marvel at the twinkling lights and beautiful decorations while they wait to take their turn.
In addition to seeing Santa, visitors can partake in a wealth of festive-themed activities, such as creating holiday crafts at the Holiday Craft Station and making reindeer food at the Reindeer Food Station. Visitors can also stop by Santa's Gift Shop to pick up some holiday gifts, visit Sledding Hill to take a sled ride down a snow-covered slope and head on down to the Blizzard Boogie to dance the night away with their favorite holiday characters.
Other attractions at this fun-filled event include Kris Kringle Carnival with its festive-themed games, Pullen Park Carousel with its hard-carved basswood animals and Pullen Place with its seasonally inspired comfort foods. Visitors can also jump aboard the Holiday Express train for a ride around the park.
Holiday Express' noteworthy charities
Every year, Holiday Express raises thousands of dollars for local and international charities. Proceeds from previous Holiday Express events have enabled the Crabtree Rotary Club to co-sponsor a clean water initiative to provide clean water reservoirs and water filtration systems to 11 schools and over 3,000 children in Lebanon. They have also helped the Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina to support programs that benefit the health and well-being of local children and their families.
