Peep, Peep! If you have a little Thomas fan like I do, you know that sound of the world’s most famous little blue engine by heart. While you may know every episode and all the trains by name, did you know that you can also take your little train fan to ride Thomas in person?
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.
