I don’t know about you, but my 4-year-old son is obsessed with trains. Obsessed. Especially with the beloved Thomas the Train and his best bud, Percy.
So when I learned that this year’s “A Day Out With Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends” annual event in Perris, CA is showcasing a talking Thomas, AND including Percy in the fun, we were elated!
If any of you have little Thomas fans in your family, mark your calendars for next month and plan to make your own”Day Out with Thomas,” and enter to win four FREE tickets in our giveaway below!
All About “A Day Out With Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends”
A Day Out With Thomas™: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014 offers families the opportunity to take a 25-minute ride with the famous #1 engine – Thomas.
And, for the first time, Percy, the locomotive, will be joining him at the Orange Empire Railway Museum. When I told my son, his little eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. This is a big deal.
Oh, and I did mention that Thomas will actually be talking, right?! Plus, you can meet Sir Topham Hatt®, the Superintendent of the Railroad. (Does anyone else think…”You’ve been a very useful engine”???)
You and your kiddos can spend the day enjoying a wide range of activities, like playing at train tables, participating in building activities, train artwork, temporary tattoos, train crafts, storytelling and videos.
There will also be games, coloring, live children’s music, a petting zoo, bounce houses, sing-alongs, a Thomas gift store…and that’s not even all of it.
Take a street car and trolley ride, and explore the amazing Orange Empire Railway Museum. More than plenty to do and see and enjoy while you’re there!
