Pictures with Santa will be held on November 26th from 5pm-9pm along with everything Winterfest and the Tunnel of Lights has to offer. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to capture your holiday photo with Santa, positioned by vintage trolley cars taken by renown photographer Marc Glucksman of River Rail Photo. Marc Glucksman is a lifelong photographer and electric traction fan. His work can be seen across a variety of publications and platforms, including the New York Times, CNN and Trains Magazines. Check out his work at www.riverrailphoto.com. Pictures will be available on Marc’s website for purchase along with holiday card options, digital download, tote bags, picture packages and more. The cost is $20 for Winterfest patrons and $50 for non Winterfest patrons. Reservations must be made in advance at www.ct-trolley.org

Winterfest and the Tunnel of Lights will be held from 5PM until 9PM on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights from Nov 26th through Dec 19th. Additionally the Museum will be open from Dec 26th through Dec 30th. Winterfest and the “Tunnel of Lights” is celebrating its 43rd year as a family holiday tradition. Halls are decked both inside and outside with over 15,000 lights. Outside, closed trolley cars transport jolly guests down a tunnel of lights as they sing traditional Christmas Carols with their trolley car operators. For an open air view of the “Tunnel of Lights,” one open sleigh car is lit up entirely with holiday lights. Be sure to dress warm and bring blankets. Inside, the Visitor Center is a Winter Wonderland with multiple model train layouts and lights galore. Admission prices are $15-$20 per person and all ticket sales must be made in advance. Museum Members receive half off admission.

Winterfest and the Tunnel of Lights is held Rain or Shine. We do not operate Open Cars in the Rain and will substitute for a closed car if it is raining.

Tickets must be purchased in advance as there will be no ticket sales at the Trolley Museum on the day of the event. Tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable.
