“All Aboard” for the Christmas Train Village
The Polk County Heritage Society ushers in the 2022 holiday season with their 20th Annual Christmas Train Village event. This favorite has been around for multiple generations and is one holiday tradition that locals have grown to count on to get into the Christmas spirit. The society owns and maintains both Heritage Park, in Historical Downtown Livingston, and The Christmas Train Village display. Volunteers have been busy decorating Locomotive #5 in Heritage Park and preparing their train village for its’ annual Christmas showing.
The Christmas Train Village display will be open and running on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. between November 25th and December 30th, at 406 N. Washington Ave., inside Good Golly Miss Molly’s. Train starts the day after Thanksgiving.
This isn't the normal small train that goes around someone's tree. This ‘O-gauge’ Christmas Train Village has many unique and interesting parts. There is a Christmas parade, depictions of local landmarks, a carnival with animated rides, a zoo, a fishing village, ski-mountains, bobsledders, ice skaters, a flying Santa and so much more. There is a circus train, passenger train, a freight train, a trolley, Thomas the Train, and the Polar Express.
The Polk County Heritage Society is a 501 c-3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of local history. The society does accept donations to help with the maintenance of Heritage Park and to help restore the Jonas Davis log cabin. The society needs help to save the Jonas Davis log cabin for future generations, please take a moment during this season of giving to consider this special project.
After visiting the Christmas Train Village, enjoy a drive through town to see the many holiday light displays. Enjoy the Historical Main Street District, Anniversary Park, City Hall, Heritage Park, the Public Library, Miss Effie’s Cottage and Pedigo Park. It’s a treat for all ages.
Livingston Specialty Merchants Guild and Livingston Main Street are so excited to invite everyone to play around at this event and to keep the fun going by shopping or staying in town like a local. Feel free to follow up the good time by grabbing dinner or dessert at one of our local places to dine. Most importantly, the Guild invites one and all to come have some time with our town to celebrate, make some memories, take some cute pictures, and see how we #LivLocal.
