The Connecticut Trolley Museum presents Winterfest 2019 and the “Tunnel of Lights” beginning Friday, November 29th. Winterfest will be open from 5PM until 9PM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights from Thanksgiving Weekend through New Year’s Eve. Santa will be onsite in a historic caboose for photos and to give a small gift to each child until he has to fly back to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. Admission prices are $15 for adults, $14 for seniors (62+), $11 for children (ages 4-12), $4 for children (3 & under).
Winterfest and the “Tunnel of Lights” is celebrating its 41st operating year as a family holiday tradition. Halls are decked both inside and outside with over 15,000 light bulbs. Outside, closed trolley cars transport jolly guests down a tunnel of lights as they sing traditional Christmas Carols with their trolley car operators. For an open air view of the “Tunnel of Lights,” one open sleigh car is lit up entirely with holiday lights. Be sure to dress warm and bring blankets.
Inside the Visitor Center is a Winter Wonderland where Santa meets and greets children inside a historic caboose. Multiple model train layouts, both large and small are located in the main hall.
