Day Out with Thomas: The Celebration Tour 2015 Coming to Florida

Thomas steams down the track_HIGHFor two back-to-back weekends, little engineers and their families are invited to take a 25 minute ride on their favorite engine, meet Sir Topham Hatt®, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas & Friends themed activities including arts & crafts, storytelling and more.  Florida Railroad Museum will also offer mini train rides, face painting, a bounce house, imagination station, live entertainment along with other activities.   We had the opportunity to attend the Day Out With Thomas event last year at the Florida Railroad Museum and my little guy still talks about it. There was so much to do and see and it was simply a dream come true for my little train lover. You can see all about our adventure last year HERE.

    I would absolutely thrilled to win these tickets! My daughter loves Thomas the Train so much (she says her light up Thomas sneakers make her run super fast!) and she loves her aunt who lives in Tampa even more! It would be so wonderful to win and be able to take my daughter on a fun Thomas train ride with her aunt and grandpa. Thank you for the chance to win!

  1. My grandson is a huge fan of Thomas, every time he sees him all he can say is Tom Tom, he just love him, he has a potty chair and a battery operated train of Thomas, So this would just make his day.

  2. We would love to go because my son is obsessed with Thomas!

    My son adores Thomas – I am amazed at all the train characters he knows by name. His grandparents recently had to cancel a visit to tend to an emergency with his Great Grandma. This would be a great family outing to share together, as the situation settles.
