The Christmas Train

Victory Camp – Alvin ,TX

Each year in December hundreds of volunteers from LS Church and Victory Camp come together to setup and host the Christmas Train at Victory Camp in Alvin. The event began back in 2000, and over the years has quickly become one of the Houston areas favorite Christmas Events. The train is open to the public and all ages are welcome.

The train ride is a unique experience through over 300,000 lights and hundreds of Christmas decorations. Colorful gingerbread villages, penguin snow lands and life size storybook illustrations are all some of the scenes you and your family will experience along the way.

Trains depart every 7-10 minutes. For the best experience, purchase tickets before you arrive. Tickets can be purchased online and will reserve you a place on your selected train.
