And, with your ride you'll receive a free skate rental for ice skating at Arlington Square Ice Rink from 1-11 p.m. Saturday or 1-9 p.m. Dec 13. Bring your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews and enjoy a wholesome, fun tradition of seeing Santa on the Warren Engine Company #1. Warm up with hot chocolate and refreshments for sale and free admission to the museum. Check out the engines, get your photo taken and enjoy a lot of history here in Carson City.

WHAT: Ride the Rails with Santa
