The Kilmarnock

Trolley Express

!A NEW Holiday Event for the Whole Family!

Inspired by the iconic film and award-winning book, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg, the magic of Christmas comes to life on board the Kilmarnock Trolley Express. Read along with the story as the Kilmarnock Trolley makes its magical journey from the Town Centre Park to the North Pole.

Enjoy dancing, hot cocoa, and cookies ending with meeting Santa who has a special gift for each child. Children of all ages, young and young at heart, will leave with that sparkle of Christmas in their eyes and in their hearts.

Families are encouraged to come dressed in their pajamas, enter the Christmas Express station and take part in a 90 minute magical experience.

  • First,  it’s all aboard the Kilmarnock Trolley to hear the story and be transported  on “a journey to the North Pole”.

 

  • Upon your return to Town Centre Park, you go “Rockin’ on Top of the World” around the Christmas tree to music from the movie along with our dancers.

 

  • Next, it’s on to Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen for cookies and hot chocolate. Oh yes, we will sing and dance to the “Hot Chocolate” song from the movie. Goodies brought to you by NN Burger-Kilmarnock!

 

  • Finally, you arrive at our own version of the North Pole to meet Santa where he has a special gift for every child. Then its time to head home.

When is all this fun?
