ST. LOUIS – Children will soon be able to board The Polar Express right here in St. Louis for a trip to the North Pole.
Kids are encouraged to wear their pajamas to board the train at St. Louis Union Station and experience the sights and sounds of The Polar Express, a popular children's book. Hot chocolate and treats will be served as the book is read aloud.
When children arrive at the North Pole, Santa and his helpers will be there to present them with a silver sleigh bell. Christmas carols will be sung on the ride back to Union Station.
Train rides run Nov. 22 through Dec. 28 on select dates. Ticket prices start at $38, but vary by date and service. More information is available through The Polar Express' website.
