DAY OUT WITH THOMAS™: THE READY, SET, GO TOUR 2016 MOVES FULL STEAM AHEAD INTO ESSEX STEAM TRAIN & RIVERBOAT FOR THOMAS’ BIGGEST YEAR EVER!
THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE™ AND HIS BEST FRIEND PERCY TO ]VISIT APRIL 16-17, 23-24 & APRIL 30-MAY 1 IN ESSEX, CT.
It is that time again...Thomas the Tank Engine will be making a stop here in CT to visit with his fans and take them on a fun train ride through Essex, CT. We have been going to this annual event ever since Savannah was a year old. Thomas the Tank Engine was one of her favorite shows and next to Mommy and Daddy, she was saying Thomas as part of her early vocabulary. To say she was a big fan of Thomas was an understatement. Back then, her bedspread, curtains and rooms was all Thomas. And, she couldn't leave the house without wearing something Thomas, either a hat, socks, shirt, etc. While she is slowly growing out of the Thomas stage, she still loves Day out with Thomas and going on a train ride. Come on, what child (or adult for that matter) doesn't like trains?! :-) I find myself getting just as excited as they do, when I see "Day Out with Thomas" on the calendar.
If you have a Thomas the Tank Engine fan in your house and have gone in the past to this annual event, or want to experience this popular family-friendly event with your family, here are all the details about this year's "Day Out with Thomas", which is making a stop in Essex, CT on April 18, 25-26 and May 2-3...
