Christmas in a Railroad Town

December 07, 2018 in Opelika , AL

6pm - 9pm


Christmas In A Railroad Town, held on the same December weekend with the Victorian Front Porch Tour, transforms Railroad Avenue in Historic Downtown Opelika into a Christmas wonderland and festival. Treats for children include rides on a miniature train, pony rides and time with Santa and Mrs. Claus as everyone enjoys live music, hot wassail and a variety of holiday treats. Retailers in downtown Opelika are open late for your Christmas shopping, too, so check out the boutiques for a unique Southern gift. The event is traditionally held on Friday, 6 to 9 p.m. along Railroad Avenue. For more information, contact Opelika Main Street, Inc. or visit
