Irvine Park Christmas Train

I was fortunate to win tickets to the Christmas train at Irvine Park. We have been to the park several times, but have never done the Christmas activities.

We caught a glimpse of Santa, who was at the midway stop along the the train ride.

We were given activity tickets, so the kids tried their hand at “ice fishing”. They each won a small stuffed elf (given to everyone who tried).

They also used tickets to decorate cookies. The sign said “These cookies have come in contact with peanuts…”, which is a little disconcerting as a parent of kids with nut allergies. However, I’m pretty sure they were just trying to waive all possible liability.
