You guys, I'm so in love with this time of the year. Yes, I love Fall and all the tastes and sights that go along with it, but I really love this time due to the anticipation of the Christmas season ahead.

Am I slightly Christmas-obsessed? Absolutely. Then announcements like this happen, and my obsession kicks up a few notches...Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens' All Aglow Express will be delighting holiday guests for the fourth year in a row beginning November, 25, 2017. YES!!

If your family has never taken a ride aboard the All Aglow Express, get ready for a magical Christmas experience your kids will love. Trolley Car 36 transforms and immerses you in the world of Polar Express complete with a trip to see Santa Claus and plenty of holiday cheer.

The All Aglow Express will run on November 25 and 26, and again on December 2, 3, 8 and 9. Each day will have rides times available at 5, 6 and 7 p.m. The cost is $16 for resident adults and $14 for residents ages 2-17 years old. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 10 a.m. in person at the Conservatory, or by phone at 815-987-8863.

These tickets will sell FAST, so you better mark a to-do to call starting right at 10 a.m. on November 4th so you don't miss out. You can get more info on the event and ticket purchasing rules, here.
