While festive fun like local holiday train shows and Christmas events for kids are more likely to summon thoughts of sparkling snowflakes, cozy sweaters and hot chocolate than Thomas the Tank Engine, we're sure glad New York Botanical Garden is bringing one of your kid's favorite toys into the mix this holiday season. From Dec 30–Jan 15 (the event runs through Jan 21), admission to All Aboard with Thomas and Friends also includes access to NYBG's Holiday Train Show. Pretty sweet deal, don't you think?
During the experience, you'll join Thomas and Driver Sam on a wacky sing-along and enjoy a mini-performance adventure. Don't miss an opportunity to have your photo taken with Thomas! Learn more about the event here, and peep our roundup of great things to do with train-loving kids.
