Calgary Events – A Day Out With Thomas at Heritage Park

Thomas the Train
Thomas the Train!

The other day, we were driving south on 14th past Heritage Park and as we did so, we pointed out the trains for Little H.

“Look H – Trains!”

“I went there and I rode Thomas!” she said.

“Yes, that’s where we were when we saw Thomas.  Do you remember going there?”


“You don’t want to go there again do you?”

“Yes, and I want to ride Thomas again!”

For a three year old, it was surprising how much she remembers from a year ago.  A year is a long time when you’re a pre-schooler but she remembers Heritage Park and she sure remembers riding on Thomas the train.  It must be because she had so much fun and because she’s such a fan of the show.

So this year we’re going back to Heritage Park for a second ride and the hubs and I are looking forward to it because this year, she’ll already know what it’s all about and will anticipate each activity.

Here are the details:
