Christmas is always a special time of year for us in Allegany County. We have the wonderful Western Maryland Scenic Railroad's Santa Express and North Pole Express for the kids to enjoy a real Christmas train ride. The downtown lights of Baltimore Street are fantastic with the lighting of the Cumberland Christmas tree and the festive holiday storefront decorations. Visiting Santa at the Country Club Mall is a special treat. There's lots to see at the Cumberland Theatre, Tree House Toy Shop, New Embassy Theatre, & Mr. Toad's Pottery. The Gordon-Roberts House presents crafts, tours, refreshments, and a story by the fire during "The Night Before Christmas" event for kids. Cumberland's Midnight Madness offers downtown shopping until midnight with free trolley and carriage rides, visits from Santa and Rudolph, & holiday music.
