The Connecticut Trolley Museum invites your family aboard a restored trolley to see Christmas lights. Winterfest and the “Tunnel of Lights” is celebrating its 40th operating year as a family holiday tradition. Halls are decked both inside and outside with over 15,000 light bulbs.
Outside, closed trolley cars transport jolly guests down a tunnel of lights as they sing traditional Christmas Carols with their trolley car operators. For an open air view of the “Tunnel of Lights,” one open sleigh car is lit up entirely with holiday lights. Be sure to dress warm and bring blankets.
Inside the Visitor Center is a Winter Wonderland where Santa meets and greets children inside a historic caboose. Multiple model train layouts, both large and small are located in the main hall, along with more full scale trolleys. Hot cocoa and warm snacks are also available for purchase inside the Visitor Center.
Winterfest runs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through December 30th. For more information about Winterfest and the Tunnel of Lights, call (860) 627-6540 or visit their website at www.CT-Trolley.org.
