Forest Preserve, Rt. 31, South Elgin
Late at night, do you hear sounds of ringing bells, hissing steam and squeaking metal? Do you hear a conductor saying “All Aboard”? Adults with children clad in pajamas, robes and slippers are welcomed on a magical journey aboard a private train—The Polar Express. Bound for the North Pole of course! As the rich hot chocolate warms our insides, the reading of The Polar Express will warm us to the holiday spirit. And in keeping with the story, Santa will appear and hand out the first gift to every child (a bell)! Entrance will be at the Jon Duerr Forest Preserve on Rt. 31 in South Elgin. Price is per person. All persons must remain seated throughout the trip. Bathrooms are not available. Due to any snowfall of 6" or more on Dec. 5 or later, event may be cancelled. All ages must register! Call 630-879-5235 to register!
