This fun-filled event offers children and their families the opportunity to take a ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular Thomas & Friends™ series. In addition, they will meet Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas-themed activities including toy play, photo ops, and more. The tour, now in its 24th year, will make 37 stops across the U.S. and Canada and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2019.
We are pleased to also announce that Bob the Builder will be joining Thomas at the St. Thomas event for three stage shows and meet & greet sessions each day during the event. This addition to the event is made possible thanks to support from the Celebrate Ontario grant program.
