Local children and their parents dressed in pajamas during the enchanting night, while the EESG members read the book ‘The Polar Express’ in front of a Christmas tree. The kids along with their parents enjoyed hot chocolate and cookies during the festivities. After the reading, the children got in line with their Polar Express train tickets to be punched to be able to view the movie where popcorn was then severed.

After the movie, the kids received a surprise visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. At the end of the night, the children also received a book to take home, a bell (just like in the movie), and a candy cane.
