Peep peep! If you have little train lovers in your house, you have probably met Thomas the Tank Engine and all his friends. It’s remarkable how well kids relate to Thomas and his friends learning from mistakes, sorting out relationships, and finding their place in the world. (Or at least their place on the Island of Sodor!) Don’t miss your chance to meet everyone’s favourite tank engine this spring when he chugs back into town for Day Out with Thomas: Dream Big at Heritage Park Historical Village.

“They’re two, they’re four, they’re six, they’re eight,
Shunting trucks and hauling freight!
Red and green and brown and blue
They’re the Really Useful crew!”

Get your tickets to join the fun when this cheeky train comes to Calgary for two full weekends of exciting Thomas-themed activities, from May 7 – 8 and 14 – 15, 2022. The highlight of the day is riding in an interactive train pulled by Thomas himself but there are plenty of other special activities, including a chance to meet everyone’s favourite railway controller, Sir Topham Hatt™! For extra fun, don’t forget your youngster’s favourite Thomas apparel or railroad conductor outfit for the wonderful photo ops at the Dream Big Corner. Head to the Play Pod for interactive games and stop by the exclusive pop-up gift shop for toys and swag. A Day Out With Thomas is the perfect way to kick off your spring fun!
