Thomas the Train Green Bay

Thomas the Tank Engine returns for a day of family fun as Thomas The Tank pulls into Green Bay’s National Railroad Museum June 21-25, 2017.

All aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine invites little engineers to join him for a day of friendship and family fun at Day Out with Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017. Children everywhere can spend a day with their friend Thomas when the #1 Engine pulls into Green Bay on June 21-25, 2017. Day Out with Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017 is presented by Mattel.

Day Out with Thomas is a fun-filled event that provides children of all ages the opportunity to climb aboard and take a ride with Thomas as well as participate in Thomas & Friends™ themed activities.  The tour, now in its 22nd year, will make 42 stops across the U.S. and Canada, and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2017. For 5 straight days 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 fun.

In celebration of this year’s theme, Day Out With Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017 will feature an array of friendship-inspired activities. Attendees will be able to participate in events that encourage and celebrate friendship including photo opportunities, crafts, and a fun activity that invites kids to collect passport stamps throughout the day to receive a trio of Day Out With Thomas friendship bracelets. The 2017 tour theme is in line with this year’s Thomas & Friends global brand campaign, ‘Set Friendship in Motion’ – a campaign that ties together content, social integrations, and event activations across the entire Thomas & Friends franchise to highlight the importance of first friendships and the development of key friendship skills in toddlers.

  1. My son likes Toby – he has the mini trains and that one is his favourite. I also recently discovered that he thinks Percy is a girl! 😛

  2. Thomas is a joy to watch and play with at our house….my 3 year old would be ecstatic to be able to rideThomas the train, it would be the greatest gift for his 4th birthday on June 20th!!!!! What a perfect gift for a 4 year old little boy?

  3. Thomas is the favorite here. Although my son has started answering the phone, “hello, this is Sir Topham Hat”
