VIRGINIA, November 25, 2013 — This December, the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) will once again partner with Operation Lifesaver and the United States Marine Corps to deliver VRE’s Annual Operation Lifesaver Santa Trains.
The event, which will take place on December 14th, is a popular local event among kids and their parents who get to ride the VRE train with Santa and Mrs. Claus. There will be plenty of seasonal fun: candy canes, coloring books, and carolers, as well as opportunities for kids to learn about Operation Lifesaver’s “Look, listen and live!” campaign.
The Woodbridge, Fredericksburg, Manassas, and Burke Centre stations will all be participating in the event. Tickets cost $5.00 at outlets and $6.00 online, go on sale at 9am, and are expected to go fast. Last year the event sold out within an hour.
A limited number of tickets will be sold online. The rest will only be sold at the individual stations. Tickets for each station are only sold at one location. Furthermore, ticket sales are limited to 6 per person for most trains.
Operation Lifesaver Santa Trains will also be converting the participating stations into Marine Corps Toys for Tots drop off sites on December 14th, and is encouraging patrons to bring a toy to the Santa Trains so that someone less fortunate in the area can have a happy holiday as well.
