Holiday Express at Pullen Park - Christmas comes early in Raleigh!

As I've said before, Pullen Park in Raleigh is my absolute favorite park to take my kids in the Raleigh area.  So when I saw this, I ran straight home to look it up. And I'm so glad I did because you have to buy tickets to attend.

This holiday season they're going to decorate Pullen Park with lights and displays. I am particularly excited about the lighted train ride and the visit with Santa! It's December 5-9 from 4-9 p.m. and tickets are already on sale. (Last year the event sold out early, the website said). Children under 2 are free with a paying adult, all other tickets are $8 per person.

Click here to get your tickets or you can buy them at parks and recreation facilities. It looks like you have to sign up for reclink to buy the tickets online. Armbands will be available for pick up on the night you reserved.

520 Ashe Ave
Raleigh, NC 27606

As of November 13, 2012, Saturday and Sunday has sold out and there are less than 75 tickets available for Sunday. Wednesday and Thursday (December 5 & 6) still have a few hundred remaining.


  1. Another great day for kids and their parents is the Fall Arts Fair at Pullen Arts Center at North Pullen Park on Saturday October 20th from 10 am until 5 pm. Outdoors rain or shine. They always have great hands-on kid activities and over 40 local artists to wander through their wares.

  2. Pullen Park is also our favorite, and planning to go to the Holiday Express today, Saturday! Very excited!
