Tweetsie Christmas Debuts in Blowing Rock
BLOWING ROCK, N.C. — The High Country’s new holiday tradition is here! Celebrate the joy of the season when Tweetsie Railroad transforms into a winter wonderland for Tweetsie Christmas. On Friday and Saturday evenings from November 24 through December 30, guests can experience countless holiday delights at North Carolina’s first theme park.
At Tweetsie Christmas, experience an evening full of holiday festivities for the whole family to enjoy. Santa Claus will arrive on the first train of the night and head to his workshop at the Tweetsie Pavilion, where children can share their Christmas wishes and have their photos taken with Old Saint Nick. Engine No. 12, fondly known as “Tweetsie,” will take guests on a train ride through the Blue Ridge Mountains, along a route decorated with a spectacular display of twinkling lights. Some guests may even be lucky enough to experience a train ride through the snow.
The holiday magic will continue throughout the park, where guests can listen to carolers, watch a live Christmas Show, and even roast s’mores by a fire pit. Visitors can also spend time selecting the perfect Christmas tree to bring home for the holidays. 
Tweetsie Railroad will be open for Tweetsie Christmas on Friday and Saturday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Tickets are $38 per person and are being sold for a designated night with a specific train ride time. A limited number of guests will be admitted each evening, so visitors are urged to purchase tickets in advance.
