Coming Attraction: National Train Day
National Train Day is Saturday, May 9, and Union Station is hosting a kid-friendly event to mark the occasion.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., kids can get up close and personal with displays that include historic private cars, freight cars and Amtrak equipment.
Also on the schedule are events at the Amtrakids Depot. Radio Disney's Rockin' Road Crew will be there from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. providing music, a dance party and interactive games. Magicians, face painters and Amtrak train engineers and conductors will also be on hand to entertain and educate the pint-sized "trainiacs."
From the looks of it, this event seems very hands-on. So count on us in for Saturday. It will also mark our first trip to Union Station.
And besides, I can't wait to hear two of the cutest words in my little munchkin's vocabulary: "Choo choo!"
