This summer I wrote about A Day Out with Thomas in North Carolina. Well, Thomas is now visiting Cordele, a short two hour drive south of Atlanta.
As I said in my last post, if you have a Thomas fan, or a child that likes trains, this is a great excursion. The highlight of the experience is a 25 minute train ride on the real Thomas the Tank Engine. However, children also get to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the conductor of the railroad. Additional activities include arts & crafts, storytelling, Thomas videos, live music, hay bale maze, temporary tattoos (My youngest LOVES tattoos.), bounce houses and more. There is also a Thomas store, so if your holiday theme is trains, you’ll be set.
If you’d like to win tickets to see Thomas, Field Trips with Sue is giving away a family 4 pack and a Thomas the Tank Engine DVD. The tickets are for Sunday, Nov. 1 at 11 am. I know it’s a little early and I’m working on getting the option of a later time, but this is it for now. If you are interested in winning the tickets and the DVD, leave a comment below or on the Field Trips with Sue Facebook page (www.facebook.com/fieldtripswithsue). This one is a short turn-a-round, so we’ll announce the winner on Friday and your tickets will be at Will Call. We’ll mail you the DVD.
