For the fourth year in a row, Burlington will host the Carolina division of the Atlantic Coast S Gaugers. The ACSG build interactive model train displays. These displays are intricate and made to impress little kids and big kids.
The depot will host a special holiday themed exhibit spanning over a 2 week period. Find a night or day that works for your family/church group/school group or friends and come downtown to check it out!
Many businesses in our Downtown community are helping us keep the fun going by offering a special feature during the exhibit. This display will make little kids eye’s light-up and make our more seasoned citizens relive their youth. Stop in and say Merry Christmas to our downtown community.
