Proceeds from this event support the Elgin County Railway Museum (a spot not to be missed while you're in town), who is hosting the event for the 9th consecutive year.
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.
We have visited Thomas every summer of my twins life, and we are SO EXCITED to start the tradition with our new little man now. Not only do you get a 25 minute ride on Thomas, you can also meet Sir Topham Hatt, check out storytelling, video viewing, live music, children’s entertainers, bubbles, Island of Sodor hay bale maze, Misty Island cool mist tents, inflatable bouncers, and model railway displays. There's always stickers and tattoos to be had, yummy snacks, a fun shop to check out and more!
