Santa rides into Palmdale today on the Holiday Toy Express Train!

PALMDALE – Santa Claus is coming to the Palmdale Transportation Center from 5 to 5:45 p.m. Sunday as part of the city-sponsored Metrolink Holiday Toy Express Train extravaganza. Admission is free.

The 450-ton train will be decorated with more than 50,000 twinkling, animated light displays. Santa will arrive on the train, make his way down to the station, and visit with the guests before heading back to the North Pole.

Palmdale was selected as one of the 32 stops on the fifteenth annual Holiday Toy Express Train celebration tour.

In addition to the show, local firefighters will be at each station to collect toys for the Spark of Love Toy Drive.

Residents are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment for the drive.  Toys collected in the Palmdale area will be distributed locally to underserved children.

The Palmdale Transportation Center is located at 39000 Clock Tower Plaza Drive, Palmdale, CA 93550.
