If you don't want to join the crushing madness of Christmas shopping this weekend, the folks at Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Company are offering a fun alternative.

The organization's 32nd annual Christmas train garden kicks off on Saturday at noon.

The construction of the popular attraction begins months before the display opens to the public, according to the company's website, and takes the efforts of many dedicated fire company volunteers and community train buffs.

Wise Avenue hosted its first holiday garden in 1981, three years after the Dundalk Fire Station closed its display that had entertained residents and community visitors for many decades, according to the Wise Avenue train history website.
