There is a Polar Express event for children that comes along during the holidays. The catch is that tickets go on sale early and they sell out incredibly fast.
In my area, the tickets are on sale October 1st and they sometimes sell out the same day. So I wanted to mention it if people want to check and see if their city is participating. The tickets are kind of expensive so we are still debating if we want to go.
If you are not familiar with this event, it’s basically a train ride on The Polar Express- inspired by the movie. They play holiday music and you get served hot chocolate and cookies. Passengers then get to listen to a reading of The Polar Express book as the train travels to “the North Pole”. There is a meet and greet for the children with Santa and each child gets their own sleigh bell just like in the movie.
Families are encouraged to wear their pajamas for the ride and join in on the magic of Christmas. I have seen such cute pictures of families decked out in coordinating pjs and such- very festive!
