What a Blast!! A Day Out with Thomas at Heritage Park.

We went to Heritage Park Calgary today for our Ride on Thomas the Train!  This  was really one of the best days we’ve had at a ‘kids’ event here in Calgary.  We didn’t tell her where we were going, just that it was for a special day.  We parked the car and started walking down the path towards the park and she saw him.  “I see a Thomas the Train!” she yelled.  She really was blown away and VERY excited.  It was quite a special thing to see.  There was so much to do there besides the train ride too.  She met ‘Sir Topham Hatt’, got her face painted, listened to Thomas story time and never tired of watching Thomas ride around the track.  I snagged a couple videos because it’s hard to convey how into this she really was.  Have a watch?

We will defiantly go back to Heritage Park Calgary later this summer when all the exhibits are open. I know she’ll love the petting zoo and the antique midway which we didn’t hit up today because there was just so much other stuff to do. Thank you to Heritage Park Calgary for arranging this day for us and I have to say how impressed I was with the number of staff on site. There were clear markings for lost child areas and you never had to look for someone to answer a question. Well done guys!

    • Don’t mention it! I miss our old Monday creativity chats but I do check in on you from time to time 🙂 Hope you enjoyed your day yesterday!

  1. hi sweetie it sure looks like you had a great day nana and papa wish they could have been with you we love you sooooo much

    • that’s what I really love about our Heritage Park. It’s so spread out that even when there’s a 1000 people there it doesn’t feel crowded. You should really go, it was a blast!

  2. Looks like you all had as much fun as my family did last Summer!!! Thank you for sharing your experience with us, I am hoping to get to North Conway, NH this year if Thomas comes again!!
    .-= Brandy´s last blog ..Happy Mother’s Day =-.

  3. I’m so excited to find this post detailing your visit. We have tickets for this Saturday at Heritage Park. My 4 year old grandson eats, breathes and sleeps Thomas.
    I was wondering if you also have to pay for admission to the park on top of your Day Out tickets and is there anything else open? The bakery for instance?

    • Our tickets included admission to the park, our train ride, the event tents (face painting, story etc) and I think the horse/buggy ride but we didn’t do that. Yes, the bakery, candy store and ice cream store were open as were the restaurants and midway. Not all the exhibits were open, many of the farm animals weren’t there but there was so much to do we didn’t hit it all anyway. Have fun, I’m jealous and would love to go again!!
