The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department in partnership with the Friends of the Aiken Railroad Depot will host their 7th Annual Santa at the Depot event on Saturday, December 15th 10 am – 1 pm at the Aiken Visitors Center and Train Museum (406 Park Ave SE).

Santa and Mrs. Claus will grandly arrive at the Depot at 10 a.m. and remain there until 1:00 p.m. There will be festive Christmas music and our new Drive-A-Train exhibit which will be available through the end of the month. Children will be given cookies, milk, and a craft to take home. This event is free for all. Be sure to bring your camera!

Throughout the holiday season, the Aiken Visitors Center and Train Museum are decorated from head to toe for Christmas. Hiding in a different town each week you’ll find our Elf on the Shelf, Mr. Jingles Choo Choo, who is watching all the boys and girls make sure they are being nice! Stop by each week, see if you can spot Mr. Jingles Choo Choo, and get a prize if you find him!
