Free train rides will be provided by Mountain Fresh Orchard. There will also be many tasty treats and fresh baked goods available for purchase from Mountain Fresh. 

The holiday fun does not stop there! Kids of all ages can get a free photo with festively dressed Llamas and a Christmas sleigh provided by Ellaberry Llama Farm. Free faerie hair will be provided by A Walk in the Woods and free face painting will be provided by Color Me Happy. 

Children attending the event can learn how to make a wool-spun bracelet to take home courtesy of the Henderson County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee.
