Come out and ride the Holiday Express train at Creekmore Park during Thanksgiving Weekend! The regular holiday run starts December 5th and run through December 22nd, but this year you can also ride the train Friday and Saturday nights after Thanksgiving, as the Christmas lights in the park are turned on for the season. The Creekmore Holiday Express is a colorful journey through the hundreds of animated lights adorning Creekmore Park during the holidays. The Steam engine train will be running opening night only and thereafter will be the diesel engine. See all the lights at Creekmore, Pendergraft and the River parks. The lights will be on from Thanksgiving through the end of the year. You can even ride the train after Christmas this year. The train will also run from the 27th through the 30th from 5:30pm - 8:30pm each night.
Besides Creekmore Park, Christmas lights are also in Ross Pendergraft Park, the River Park Pavilion, and Compass area from Thanksgiving weekend through New Year's Day. These lights are a Fort Smith tradition and part of the Arkansas Trail of Holiday Lights. For other Trail of Holiday Lights locations in the area and throughout the state, pick up a free Arkansas Trail of Holiday Lights brochure at Miss Laura's Visitors Center at 2 North B Street in Fort Smith.
