Making Seasons Brighter with Santa and Lights!

The holiday season in Sanford wouldn’t be complete without the wildly popular Downtown Sanford Tree and Train Lighting at Depot Park. This year, Santa pulls out all the stops to illuminate Depot Park and the No. 12 Locomotive with twinkling lights. Spend the afternoon enjoying holiday performances on The Depot Stage, savoring sweet treats and of course, visiting with the big man himself! From there, join Mayor Salmon and Santa for a special countdown as they light the park for the holiday season! Make your plans now for this exciting experience that’s sure to bring great tidings of comfort and joy to you and yours!
