Polar Express Storytime Train

December 12, 2021, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


Come take a ride on The Polar Express Storytime Train! We will board the train at the Downers Grove Main Street Station and head to the North Pole (Banquets at Two Brother’s Roundhouse in Aurora). Upon arrival, Santa’s Elves will welcome your family into Santa’s Workshop where we will eat a breakfast or lunch buffet with Santa. During your stay at the North Pole, you will take a picture with Santa, decorate a delicious sugar cookie, play fun holiday games, and create a holiday craft! At the end of the day Santa will read one of his favorite stories to everyone. We will sing some familiar holiday songs on our train ride back and read a special story. Make this event part of your holiday tradition! Pre-registration is required. Tickets sell out quickly. Registration opens July 19. *This program is not included in reduced prices.
