Registration underway for North Pole Express
Families can now purchase tickets for a ride to the North Pole via the Immaculate Conception School’s 12th annual North Pole Express on Saturday, Dec. 1.
Five trains will depart the Newburyport Commuter Rail Station through the day and take riders to visit Santa at the North Pole during a 70-minute trip. The journey will include games, hot cocoa and treats, as well as caroling. During the ride, children can also write letters to Santa and take part in a reading of the “’Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
Upon arrival at the North Pole, Rudolph, Frosty, the Christmas Mouse, and Santa and his elves will greet their guests. Of course, the trip wouldn’t be complete without a visit to The Polar Village and Mrs. Claus’ Bakery.
Tickets are $29 for all riders over the age of 1. Tickets can be purchased at www.icsnorthpoleexpress.com.
