  • North Creek Railway - The Polar Express from November 18 through December 28, 2011.  6pm and 8pm.  Meet Santa and enjoy caroling, hot cocoa, and each child will  get a treat and special gift. Kids are encouraged to wear their pajamas.  The Polar Express train makes a mystical round-trip journey to an extravagantly built North Pole just for train passengers. The characters of the story come to life with the conductor punching away at the kid’s golden tickets, chefs dancing and delivering cocoa and cookies, and the doubting hobo wandering through the train.  The Polar Express story will be read aloud and the music from the movie will play for all the kids to sing along.  At the North Pole, Santa anxiously awaits the children amongst the sparkling lights of his little city and climbs aboard with his dozens of cheerful, singing elves and a classic silver bell for all the believing boys and girls.  The return trip is full of holiday cheer with Santa meeting each and every child, festive caroling with Santa’s elves, and all the characters of the story magically bringing the story to life.
