LOS ANGELES – Metrolink’s Holiday Express Train kicked off its four-weekend tour of Southern California today in Perris with hundreds of holiday revelers in attendance. The one-of-a-kind, interactive experience features festive decorations, carolers and recognizable holiday characters, in addition to stunning views of the region’s unique landscape.

Family-friendly activities, including performances from the Perris High School band, balloon twisters and crafting tables, greeted attendees at the Perris-South Station ahead of boarding. Passengers also contributed donated toys for the County of Los Angeles Fire Department’s annual Spark of Love Toy Drive.
