The North Pole Express Trains (Formerly the Polar Express) with the Village of Antioch was a huge success and we hope to see you this year. The 3.5 hour round trip excursion comes to life as the train departs the Antioch Metra Station for a journey to the North Pole. Children will join in and sing as our conductor goes around checking each of them in. Children’s faces show the magic of the season when the train arrives at the North Pole. Santa will join the group in between keeping an eye on the elves that are busy making the toys for Christmas. Christmas carols will be sung as they return back to the Antioch Metra Station. Children and adults are encouraged to wear pajama’s to this event.
