Happening Now: Christmas at the Falls 2020

Christmas at the Falls 2020

It’s Christmas 2020, which means “things may be a little different,” but a Gadsden and Noccalula Falls tradition will continue to brighten the season. Christmas at the Falls 2020 is still spilling over with holiday cheer!

All Aboard!

Bundle up and hop on the train that will take you on a dazzling holiday ride that the whole family will love! With amped up displays and millions of colorful twinkle lights amid spectacular views, you will be delighted to find a winter woodland full of wonder. The same is true for those who opt to walk the paved trails.

Since Santa has to stay safe just like the rest of us, he will be comfortably situated at a distance where he will talk to the kids and share a little joy and laughter. You can find Santa at the general store/post office this year. There will be concessions sold here as well.
