Start a Family Tradition at Christmas at the Falls
Just a short drive over to Gadsden, Ala. will take you to a place sure to get you and your family in the Christmas spirit: Christmas at the Falls. Each year Noccalula Falls Park welcomes visitors to experience the lights and sounds of the season from Thanksgiving night November 24 through Friday December 23. Enjoy riding the train or strolling through the park to view more than a million lights. Stop by the petting zoo, visit with Santa and take pictures, decorate cookies, and sip hot chocolate. The Grinch will also pop in from time to time! For children too shy to speak their wishes to Santa or who just want to be sure he has their list right, the Park’s Old Post Office in the Pioneer Village has a special mailbox for dropping off letters to Santa
Tickets to Christmas at the Falls are available for purchase on-line at www.noccalulafallspark.com or you can purchase tickets at the Entry Pavilion as early as 4pm each afternoon. The park is open from 5 until 9p.m. each evening. Admission is $6 for ages 4 and up and children three and under are admitted free. For more information call Noccalula Falls Park at 256-549-466.†
