Jolly Trolley Polar Express

JTPE

About

All Aboard!! Jolly Trolley Polar Express passengers will board for a 20 minute jingle bell joyride. There is no Mr. Scrooge here – this ride will be full of holiday cheer with festive carols, twinkling lights and merry elves to get you in the holiday spirit! No holiday celebration would be complete without warm hot cocoa and treats and a special reading of Chris Van Allsburg's "The Polar Express" at The Scullery Coffee House & Creamery. Santa has transformed Emerge Art Gallery into one of his many workshops and this will be the final stop of the Jolly Trolley! Finishing this holiday party will be pottery activities, an indoor holiday market of local handmade treasures, and pictures with Santa to remember this special event. Pajamas are the perfect way to dress for your ride and actives on the Jolly Trolley Polar Express visit.

This year's Jolly Trolley Polar Express is presented by First Citizens.  A very special thank you goes out to them!
