The 4th weekend of the North Pole Express is now history.  But there was a special event attached to this weekend.  We celebrated the 50th run of the North Pole Express on Friday night.  The weather this whole weekend was very warm but everyone enjoyed being able to wander around the village without being bundled up.  But snow at Christmas time would be very nice. 

Stage Entertainment.

Building toys in Santa's workshop. 

We decorate everything that doesn't move.  

It's always fun to get dressed up and have a picture taken.  Everyone can do this in the Emporium. 

If you want a picture taken by the 1225 there's willing helpers for you.  

Happy elves waiting for Santa.

Happy people waiting for Santa to draw someone's name for the First Gift of Christmas.

On Saturday we celebrated Milk and Cookies with Santa.  Evan Olaf showed up. 

Not everyone was happy to see Santa. 

More dress up time. 

Another unhappy Santa visitor.

The third weekend has come and gone and it was wonderful.  Lots of people in town and lots of fun.  But alas, no snow.  The weather was beautiful, warm during the day and cold at night with clear skies. 

Mayor Mike all miced up for the evening. 

Tim Salisbury, our stage entertainer for Fridays and Sunday's.  Juggler extraordinaire.

Mrs. Claus passing out bells. 

First we get our picture taken and then we tell Santa what we want for Christmas.

We had our princess tea on Saturday afternoon with two princesses. 

Elsa and a young princess in training. 

Cinderella, Elsa and Olaf. 


Mikulas, or as the English know him, St. Nicholas.   He was in the Czech Bakery to greet the kids. 

It doesn't show up in this picture but the truck was lighted with lots of Christmas lights.
