[Scottsdale] Holiday Lights at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park

Week 5 (Dec 18th, Thursday)
Scottsdale Railroad Park

一直很喜欢我拍的这两张照片。
我们乘着小火车在轨道上疾驰前进,犹如穿越时光隧道。
道道光芒五彩缤纷;照映在家人脸上的表情是欢愉兴奋的。

就像生活。
抓起相机回头望,我看见的是绚丽斑斓的色彩。一时缅怀不及,不舍放下那段美好的时光。
突然有种轻舟已过万重山的感觉。
把注意点看清楚,他的表情告诉我,前面的风景更好看!
原是如此,人生有多少个十年!
我要好好把握眼前的一切,sit back and enjoy the ride。


Today, we went to Scottsdale to visit the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park. Holiday lights start from 11th Dec till 2nd Jan, excluding Dec. 24th, 25th and 31st. The park is open from 6.30 - 9.00pm.

Scottsdale is not far from Chandler using the highway and is kinda like a high-class town where the rich people live. The town is famous for jewelery shopping.

What to see in the park?
1. Take a train ride through more than 100,000 holiday lights turning the Railroad Park into a winter wonderland! Just like we did in the two photos above, but we took the cart ride instead of the train ride. More exhilarating!
2. Walk through the interior of a real train, a museum of sorts with displays inside. And catch Santa sitting inside!


3. Take photos with cartoon characters and hug them tight cos it's soooo cold! Elmo, Cookie Monster, Cat in the Hat, Shrek, Winnie the Pooh and others!
4. See the tree lighting ceremony.

5. Do fun, silly family stuff.

6. Take a ride on the carousel...

7. And last but not least, see the magnificent toy train sets on display as the toy trains rumble through hills and valleys.
