You can also indulge in cookie decorating and other crafts guests young and old are sure to enjoy. On certain days throughout this event’s run, there are to be trolley rides and horse-drawn carriage rides offered.

This local event packs a whole lot of Christmas into one convenient location. With the price of admission, you also get a nighttime trolley ride, professional 5X7 photo with Santa, cookie decorating, hot chocolate, crafts, entertainment, games, and your child gets to pick a gift that they select at checkout. Your kids are bound to pass out in the car on the way home from this action-packed evening, but they will also surely talk about it for days to come.

Kid’s Polar Express Workshop

If you have got a crafty kid that enjoys making handmade gifts, you should check out the Kid’s Polar Express Workshop at Caan Floral and Greenhouses. Here you and your child ride the imaginary Polar Express to the greenhouse where “The Polar Express” is then read. There, you can make three different ornaments, decorate a Christmas cookie, sip some hot cocoa, and pick out three small gifts to take home. This is a great event for young family members or friends to do together.
