Santa Clause is Coming- Midway, KY


Located just outside of Lexington, Kentucky, historic Midway is nestled between the bucolic, rolling hills of the world famous thoroughbred horse farms of the Bluegrass.

Centuries old structures featuring charming boutiques and award-winning restaurants are stacked along either side of the railroad track running through the middle of downtown. The RJ Corman line chugs into Midway regularly; a throwback to small-town USA.

Santa arrives by train at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 25th!

At Christmastime the train delivers an especially notable celebrity, the venerable Santa Claus! Old St. Nick and his elves disembark and board a horse-drawn carriage and parade around the block. They arrive at Santa’s Workshop to greet a throng of eager children.
