Polar Express Storytime Train

December 9, 2018, 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

$15 – $18

ALL ABOARD…The Frankfort Park District would like to invite children and their parents to take this special train ride to the North Pole. On the way to the “North Pole,” Santa’s elves will be busy making balloon animals while you enjoy listening to the “Polar Express” story. When we reach the “North Pole”, we will find Santa Claus and bring him back with us on the train to the Hickory Creek Metra Station. Enjoy holiday cookies and music on our way home. A parent or guardian must accompany all children. Due to the popularity of this event, a maximum of six tickets per household are available to purchase at time of registration.
