Tickets are now on sale for Hallmark Health VNA and Hospice's Santa's Polar Express, taking place on Saturday, December 8, 2012 out of the Anderson Train Station in Woburn. This family-fun event supports the agency's Maternal-Child Health Program and the North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network.
Guests on board the train enjoy cocoa and cookies while listening to the classic award-winning storybook tale, “The Polar Express.” Santa, Mrs. Claus, and "friends" board the train and greet the children. Children are given their own Polar Express bell. There is caroling and entertainment, making this a memorable holiday event for the whole family.
Each ride takes about an hour. The train leaves Anderson Station and travels without stopping to the North Polae (North Station), and back to Anderson. Children are encouraged to dress in their pajamas and bring their list for Santa.
Rides take place at noon, 2p.m., 4p.m., 6p.m. Cost is $20 for adults, $15 for children under 12. Children under age one ride free, but must sit on an adult lap. To purchase tickets, please go to the Hallmark Health VNA and Hospice website (www.hallmarkhealthhomecare.org) and click the train icon or call (781) 338-7902.
