The Polar Express Storytime Train

All aboard the Polar Express! This is your chance to capture some of the magic of Chris Van Allsburg’s beloved holiday story. Before boarding the Polar Express we will read the story at the Westmont Centre, 1 S. Cass Avenue. We will then board the train at the Westmont Train Station and head to the North Pole (Aurora depot). While at the North Pole, you will have a chance to meet Santa and his elves, enjoy some additional entertainment and some refreshments. Please note: there is no alcohol permitted on this trip. Advanced tickets are required and each family is limited to 10 tickets. Registration deadline is November 30 or when maximum is reached.  Children 2 and under are free.

We offer an 11:00am and 3:00pm Polar Express Storytime Train event.
