Get ready kids!! He's watching and now he's on his way for a sneak preview! Santa Claus is coming to Hamburg this weekend via steam locomotive!

This Saturday (December 2) Santa Claus will make his way to the Village of Hamburg’s historic Erie Railroad Depot at the corner of Scott and Union Streets. St. Nick will arrive at 9:30am aboard a train pulled by "Viscose Company" #6, a 1925 0-4-0 steam locomotive. Santa will then make his way inside the depot to Artcraft Toy Trains where he’ll meet with children until 5pm. Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras to take free pictures with Santa.

As of Monday, the forecast looks perfect for the family to enjoy a step back in time and the perfect chance to get that Holiday spirit!
