Polar Express Family Time is back again this year!

Last year, the first annual Polar Express Family Time event held at the Fort Smith Trolley Museum was a huge success! Organized entirely through a Facebook Group called “Positive People of Fort Smith,” the event will be repeated this year from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, December 14th.

Children and their families will enjoy a reading of Chris Van Allsburg’s classic Christmas story, The Polar Express, in the vintage railroad dining car. They will then be treated to hot cocoa and cookies. After a visit and photo shoot with Santa, they can take a ride on the Trolley. Children are encouraged (though not required) to wear their pajamas, as the children on the train in the story do.

This is a free event provided by volunteers, sponsors, and the Trolley Museum. The free Santa photos are provided by Bedford Camera and Video. They will be available for pick up after the event at their store, located at 2801 Rogers Avenue. Santa’s visit to Fort Smith is sponsored by BancorpSouth.

Spread the word…This is a wonderful event we hope to make a Fort Smith tradition!

The Polar Express will come to life at:

The Fort Smith Trolley Museum
100 South 4th Street
Fort Smith, AR 72901
