Our four and two year olds are big Thomas fans! We went to the event last year and they have not stopped talking about it! They always ask to go back! This year we’re taking them again and they, along with all the other little engineers, won’t believe their eyes—or their ears! For the first time ever at Day Out With Thomas™, Thomas the Tank Engine™ will be able to talk to his fans. Boys and girls will be cheerfully greeted by the #1 Engine when he pulls into Crossroads Village and Huckleberry Railroad August 15-17 and August 22-24 for Day Out with Thomas™: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014.
This fun-filled event offers little engineers and their families the opportunity to take a ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular Thomas & Friends® series. In addition, children will meet Sir Topham Hatt®, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas-themed activities including arts & crafts, storytelling and more. The tour, now in its 19th year, will make stops in 42 U.S. cities and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2014.
