Before the season officially begins, children are invited to decorate pre-made cardboard JW Elf Express train cars. The twinkling wonderland dazzles and delights as Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Elves lead children with their decorated train cars on the Elf Express in a family parade to the resort’s new River Bend Pavilion for a magical evening of holiday activities including cookie decorating, ornament making, letters to Santa, and a holiday sing-a-long. After “Light Up the Night” train cars will be available for children to decorate for a nightly parade each Saturday through December 24th.
