Bring the holiday season to life for your little ones. This very special holiday trip celebrates the magic of the season. Children and their accompanying adult will take the Metra train from Barrington Station to the Moose Lodge on the famous Woodstock Square! While riding to Santa’s Workshop in the North Pole, holiday stories will be read and carols will be sung. At the lodge cookies will be provided to decorate, and the kids will make a holiday craft while enjoying their cookies, hot chocolate or cider.
