Light Up Your Holiday Season with Santa!

The holiday season in Sanford wouldn’t be complete without the wildly popular Santa Train and Tree Lighting at Depot Park. This year, join Santa as he pulls out all the stops to not only illuminate the depot train and park with twinkling lights, but also the night sky with fireworks. Spend the afternoon and evening enjoying local performances on The Depot Stage, savoring hot cocoa and other sweet treats and, of course, visiting with the big man himself! From there, join Mayor Mann and Santa for a countdown to fireworks and the official kickoff to the winter holiday season at 6pm. Make your plans now and don’t miss this exciting experience sure to fill you and your family with good tidings of comfort and joy!
