Santa paid a visit to Rockaway this Friday, arriving by a historical steam train courtesy of Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad.
Guests were also able to hitch a ride on the steam train ride, arriving to Rockaway after being picked up in Garibaldi. Riders were treated to hot chocolate and cookies.
Upon the train's arrival in Rockaway, the crowd was greeted by music and a festive crowd. The tree in the center of the Rockaway Wayside was lit, with Neah Kah Nie High School's choir singing carols.
While the crowd admired the lit tree, Santa greeted every kid who wanted to visit, each telling him what they wished to receive for Christmas.
Magically, Santa was also able to make an appearance in Manzanita as well.
If you missed Santa, or even the train ride, don't worry! Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad will be running the Candy Cane Express on Weekends from November 25th thru December 17th. Round trip runs depart Garibaldi at 10am, 12 Noon, and 2pm. Round trip runs depart Rockaway at 11am and 1pm.
