Santa is coming to Tysons Corner for the holiday season and he’s trading in his sleigh for the Silver Line.
Jolly Saint Nick will welcome more than a dozen disadvantaged kids aboard a special train that will arrive at Tysons for the official kick off of the holiday season.
After the holiday train arrives at Tysons Corner Station, the kids will have their pictures taken with Santa, enjoy lunch and get the opportunity to pick out holiday gifts compliments of American Girl.
Meanwhile, Tysons Corner Center and the Tysons Partnership will host a press event at “Santa’s HQ” at the mall to announce “Silver Saturdays,” a special holiday promotion to encourage Metro riders from across the region to visit the great shopping and entertainment destinations that are now easily accessible via the Silver Line.
