Holiday Train Garden (Holiday Train Wonderland Walk)

The 22 year annual tradition of the holiday train gardens at Howard County Fire Station 2 is taking their act on the road this year, and lucky for us, that road is Main Street in OEC!  It’s a corona silver lining that safety concerns inspired the search for a new way to share their magic and with the support of Ellicott City Partnership, a walking tour concept was born.
The Howard County Fire & Rescue Train Garden Crew (50+ fire department and civic-minded community members) started work in October to reimagine this year’s undertaking into seven window displays throughout town.  Starting on Shop Small Saturday, November 28, and running through New Year’s weekend, January 3, enjoy our newest holiday attraction.
For those that love a little competition, scan QR codes at each window and participate in a scavenger hunt by way of your smart phone.  Who will be first in the family to spot the ballroom dancers, Big Foot family or dancing elves? 
Please join us in thanking our new friends at Howard County Fire & Rescue for their generosity and commitment to spreading the holiday spirit.  Donations are accepted for this and future years through the local Volunteer Fire Department.
Wonderland Locations:
Boman’s Dentistry – 8374 Main Street
Su Casa – 8307 Main Street
MissFit – 8225 Main Street
Sweet Cascades Chocolatier – 8197A Main Street

Walking tour and Scavenger Hunt info can be found at https://visitoldellicottcity.com/holiday-train-walk/ 

The Train Garden has been a Cooperative effort with the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue, Howard County Fire Fighters Union Local 2000, and the Howard County Volunteer Fire Departments and this year the Ellicott City Partnership.  Thank you all!
