Santa will arrive at the Carbondale Train Station at 10:30 a.m. and continue with stops at the Archbald Train Station, at 11:35 a.m.; Jessup Train Station, at 12:20 p.m.; Olyphant’s Queen City Train Station, at 1:00 p.m. and the Dickson City Train Station at 1:45 p.m., before Santa arrives at his final stop – the Steamtown National Historic Site, in Downtown Scranton, at 3:00 p.m.
All activities are free, but children are encouraged to share in the gift of giving by bringing along an unwrapped, new toy as part of a collection for Toys for Tots. This element of the event aims to teach children the values of compassion and helping others. These toys will be gifted to other children within the community whose family may be facing a disadvantage.
‘Christmas in a Small Town’ is sponsored by the Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area, in partnership with Steamtown National Historic Site, the Pennsylvania Northeast Regional Railroad Authority, Community Bank, and Penn Security Bank & Trust, along with a number of local officials, businesses, organizations and representatives of each of our participating communities.
