First, you and the kids can go meet Mr. & Mrs. Claus as they arrive via the Santa Express.

Santa rides the NJ Transit train where if you’d like, you can join Santa on the train in Little Silver or meet him at the Red Bank train station when he arrives.  

There'll be festivities before and after the train arrives with the Holiday dancers and the Pipes and Drums of the Atlantic Watch.  Once in Red Bank, Santa will board a firetruck and lead the parade to Broad Street for the Holiday Express Concert & Town Lighting.

Free hot chocolate will be handed out by the Union Hose Fire Company of Red Bank Fire Department.

Start out with a meet and greet with Mr. & Mrs. Claus in Little Silver before they board the 6:40 p.m. train to Red Bank.  Plus, you can ride the train with them free!  Santa Express tickets are compliments of The Galleria of Red Bank.

The Santa Express is scheduled to arrive in Red Bank at 6:44 p.m.

Upon arrival in Red Bank, Santa and Mrs. Claus will climb aboard a Red Bank Fire Truck and lead the procession to Broad Street for the Town Lighting & Holiday Express Concert.

Arrive early at the corner of Broad and Canal streets (by Tiffany’s) to get a good spot to first hear the youth band of the Monmouth Conservatory.

Then, Tim Mcloone’s Holiday Express band will rock out Red Bank with great tunes and special guests.

The concert begins at 7:00pm and the holiday lights throughout the town will be lit during the concert.  The LIVE countdown will be around 8:00pm.

The Union Hose Fire Company of Red Bank Fire Department will be on hand with free hot chocolate.
