What better way to embrace the spirit of joy and goodwill than with a holiday-themed train ride to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Burlington, Vermont? For the fourth year, festive families can climb aboard the Jingle Bell Express for a round-trip excursion, departing from Burlington’s Union Station and chugging along to Charlotte. Activities and treats such as caroling, storytelling, goodie bags, and visits from Santa Claus and Frosty the Snowman make spirits bright, and appearances by Madison Cota, Miss Vermont USA, and Kelsey Golonka, Miss Vermont Teen USA, add some sparkle. The event benefits the home-away-from-home for families of kids seeking treatment at the University of Vermont Children’s Hospital.
Price: $25; free for kids 2 and under in laps.
