With several evening and matinee departures in November and December, Bristow is expecting more than 35,000 visitors for this event – and the community and local businesses are polishing up their Ho-Ho-Ho (Happy, Helpful, Hospitable) in anticipation.
The Polar Express Train Ride is brought to you by Rail Events, Inc. in cooperation with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Inc.
Van Allsburg’s book (1985) has been a cherished family story and a favorite holiday classic for many years.
The story is about a doubting boy who boards a magical train ride on Christmas Eve which takes him to the North Pole where he receives a special gift from Santa. The story is heart-warming and reminds us to BELIEVE in the magic of Christmas.
Families will enjoy the reading of the book and experience activities that resemble scenes from the movie.
