The Kirby Family Farm’s Christmas Train , Levy County Florida, December 2016

The Christmas Express

The 2016 Christmas Express is the 5th year hosting this family fun event to support the non-profit organization. Experience the #1 Christmas Train in Florida! You’ll get to see Christmas lights like you’ve never seen before as you take the 20-minute journey around the Kirby Family Farm property on our authentic, narrow-gauge historic locomotive. But The Christmas Train is so much more than a train ride! The Christmas Express is a wonderful holiday event that runs on select nights in November and December. There are many activities to see and do, and we recommend at least 2-3 hours for the entire Christmas Express experience.
