Special guest St. Nick stopped at Union Station last night to help light the holiday tree! (As expected, Santa arrived via the Polar Express train.) The tree is located near the Alameda Street entrance to Union Station, just outside the Old Ticket Hall. If you’re passing through the station, swing by and take some photos with the tree. It’s more than a little festive and bright.
The Tinseltones, a Los Angeles-based caroling group, entertained passersby with some tunes during the tree lighting ceremony, along with local singer Krysti Chavez.
The tree lighting kicks off a month of holiday events at Union Station. Many of you may have already heard the Salvation Army Brass Players this morning, and they will be playing holiday music for morning commuters throughout the month. Expect some jazz music this Thursday afternoon at the East Portal, and don’t miss the All-American Boys Choir Friday night! For the schedule of events, check the Union Station page. The page will be updated as more events are listed.
