Organizers say it's not just fun for everyone, it's a tradition in the Valley.

"When you get to see families grow up over the 24 years we've been doing it, where you have the kids, and then they get married and have kids and grandkids. Every year they make a point to come, and that's really neat for us," said Bob Babcock of the Indiana Railroad. "We walk through the crowds and see the kids faces, I think the parents enjoy it as much as the kids they just don't want to admit it."

And Santa is still coming to town Sunday, too.

Newton, Illinois (South Van Buren St.):  9 a.m. - 10 a.m.
