What do locally-owned gift shops, the Noblesville Courthouse Square and a historic railroad have in common? They are all part of Hamilton County's Holiday Shoppers Express, running all day on Saturday, November 26.  The 2nd annual Holiday Shoppers Express will take you to 30 unique specialty stores and more than a dozen great restaurants, all in the heart of downtown Noblesville. And because you rode the train, you won't have to deal with parking! The train leaves the Fishers Station at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 and 3:30 p.m., so you can even sleep in! Return trips from Noblesville leave every two hours starting at 10:30 a.m. Reservations for the Holiday Shoppers Express are required and can be made by calling (317) 773-6000 or online. Who needs middle-of-the-night lines the day after Thanksgiving, when you can have a day of shopping for one-of-a-kind gifts from local merchants, beautiful window displays, complimentary coffee and hot chocolate and maybe a visit with Santa Claus.
