Tickets, tickets please!!
Our family had a blast at the Orange Empire Railway Museum for the A Day with Thomas event in Perris, and now that Christmas is just around the corner, they will be featuring their holiday event-- The Train to Santa's Workshop, which begins in December.
Our family has yet to attend this event, but I would like to gift a family with 4 passes to check out this event for the holidays during the opening weekend (available dates: December 1, 2 or 3). All you need to do is leave a comment below, with your email and preferred date, so that I can contact you for more info. I will choose a winner at random on November 27th. Best wishes and Happy Thanksgiving!
A bit more info below:
