With the cooperation of White Pass, Hougen's annually invited children to ride the train to McRae where Santa emerged from the bush and rode the train back to Whitehorse. Santa passed out candies to over 1000 children. Hundreds of people lined Main Street between the White Pass train station and Hougen's store.
