Jingle Bell Express

December 7 or 14, 2019

Join us for a magical wintry journey to the Cocheco Country Club in the C&J double-decker bus to hear a reading of the classic children’s holiday story, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg © 1985. Enjoy refreshments, receive a keepsake gift and a visit from a very special guest. Pajamas are welcome! Ticket price includes a digital family keepsake photo, time to explore the Children’s Museum and a make-and-take holiday craft. Reserve your seat early. Space is limited! 

NEW THIS YEAR: The Saturday, December 7, 1:30pm trip will be Sensory Friendly – less crowded trip; shorter storytime; option to take a family photo near a Christmas tree, the fireplace, santa doll, or live Santa; twinkle lights decorating the double decker bus, quiet peaceful holiday music, but no video; gluten free snack; and quiet areas and stress toys available. A social story will also be available on our website and at the event. 

  • Cost is $24/Members or $27/Non-members per person and children ages two and under are free (must sit on parents’ lap during the journey.) 
  • Families will have their photos with Santa emailed to them no more than 2 weeks after the event.
