Thanks Roswell for a Merry Christmas in 2016!

 
 

Friends,

Over 13,000 guests visited the Roswell Christmas Railway and experienced an amazing new Christmas tradition with family and friends during the 2016 Holiday season.

Truly a community effort, over 23 businesses sponsored the event, with dozens of artists and volunteers working months to create beautiful light displays that dazzled children of all ages. In addition, 16 different performing groups danced, played and sang, spreading Christmas cheer for all. The Roswell Parks and Rec and Zoo staff played a huge role preparing the property and hosting the event. 

Thank you Roswell for an outstanding first year. We look forward to creating joy and cheer for family and friends from our community and beyond for many years to come. 

Below we have tried to recognize all those involved. Scroll down and see how many amazing folks were involved. 

Merry Christmas,
