The Santa Train is coming back to the Riverbend tonight. The Kansas City Southern Railroad has reinstated the stop in Godfrey at the Pearl Street crossing after a six year absence. The train makes it return tonight from 4-7pm.

There will be hot chocolate and cookies served on-site, and a visit by reindeer AmFam G-Man. Organizer Keith Sherman tells The Big Z they are hoping for a big crowd tonight.
