The second weekend of the North Pole Express in Ashley. 

Be sure to check out the glass blowers while you're in town. 

What a cute hat. 

We have visitors from all over the world and they can put a pin on our map to show their home town.  I think this one in New Zealand must be the farthest from Ashley. 

At the Sweet Shop you can buy raffle tickets to win this cute Christmas quilt. 

Old cars are always a favorite.

Even the burn barrels are decorated. 

The Ashley Public Schools festival of trees at night. 

We've got the cutest elves South of the North Pole. 

Visit the Ashley Theater in the Emporium to see this illusionist at work. 

Or you can get a balloon creation. 

Do you want your face painted?

Make sure you visit Santa and give him your wish list. 

Some shots of the train at night. 

More of those cute elves.

Our volunteers like to dress in the style of the 1940's.
