Christmas is coming to Edenton’s Colonial Park a little early this year. On Saturday, December 4th, families and friends alike will have the opportunity to enjoy Christmas joy in a small town. Activities include but are not limited to a Polar Express experience aboard Edenton’s historic trolley, food truck dining paired with a children’s train ride, story time, crafts, cookie decorating, and more. Amidst all this holiday fun, Destination Downtown Edenton will kick off their annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at 5:30 PM- you won’t want to miss it. To round off the evening, the Flotilla Boat Parade will take place at 6:15 p.m.

The Polar Express experience aboard the Edenton Trolley requires tickets for all people over the age of 1. Tickets are $5 a person and can be purchased at the Penelope Barker House Welcome Center or by calling (252) 482-7800.
