All aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine invites little engineers to go full steam ahead for a day of engaging activities and fun adventures at Day Out with Thomas: The Steam Team Tour 2019.
And The Chatham Voice is giving away tickets! See Page 4 in this week’s edition of the newspaper for a chance to win tickets – a family 4 pack – to a Day Out with Thomas.
Children are invited to spend a day with their friend Thomas when the #1 Engine pulls into the St. Thomas Elgin Memorial Centre in St. Thomas, Ontario on July 12, 13 and 14 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This event offers children and their families the opportunity to take a ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular Thomas & Friends series.
In addition, they will meet Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas-themed activities including toy play, photo ops, and more.
The tour, now in its 24th year, will make 37 stops across the U.S. and Canada and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2019.
Tour organizers also announced that Bob the Builder will be joining Thomas at the St. Thomas event for three stage shows and meet and greet sessions each day during the event. This addition to the event is made possible thanks to support from the Celebrate Ontario grant program.
The day also includes a 25-minute (approximate) ride with a talking Thomas the Tank Engine, Thomas & Friends Imagination Station featuring a variety of activities, a ‘Passport to Adventures’ booklet for children to track their journey at the event and receive a special prize upon completion, and Thomas & Friends-themed activities including toy play, photo ops, temporary tattoos, the bubble zone and the Reptilia reptile zoo.
