THIS WEEK’S FEATURED EVENT
Nov 26: Crown Point ‘Polar Express’
CROWN POINT | All aboard the Polar Express! During this family-friendly free event, children and their families are invited to be transported into the classic holiday tale on an historic trolley that will make stops throughout downtown Crown Point. Activities include decorating a custom trolley ornament, listening to a reading of The Polar Express, and visiting with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the last stop on the journey, the Courthouse Lower Level Shops. Children are encouraged to wear warm pajamas under their winter coats. Additionally, artists will be in select business from 6 to 9 p.m. during the November installment of 4th Friday Arts, and stores will be open later for holiday shopping. Find out more here.
