It is with great sadness that we announce that the 2020 Santa’s North Pole Express Train rides are canceled￼￼ due to COVID-19
This was not a choice that was entered into lightly and many conversations were had with all parties involved. The decision was made with everyone’s health and safety in mind.
The Hardy County Tour and Craft Association and the Moorefield Volunteer Fire Company look forward to this event every year. Santa’s North Pole Express Train has been a staple event in many family’s Christmas traditions since 2006. Our organization has had volunteers who have helped bring Christmas alive to our rides year after year, being a part of this ride is just as much etched in their holiday traditions as it is in our riders.
We agree with the Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad that the Christmas trains could not be held safely while upholding the high standards of magic and Christmas spirit we have become known for delivering.
We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much of our daily lives and will alter our usual holiday traditions. We hope that you find ways to keep Christmas alive in your homes and in your hearts, and stay well and safe throughout the year.
We look forward to more magical rides to the North Pole in 2021! We appreicate your past (and future) support of this event and of our decisions!
