I remember reading the book to my children when they were young, then a few years later Tom Hanks starred in the movie. I'm excited to see The Polar Express will be coming to the Quad Cities thanks to the Davenport Parks and Recreation.

The Parks Department personnel are building a wooden replica which will  be part of the Polar Express poinsettias and lights display at Vander Veer Botanical Park's conservatory this winter. The train car will be stationed outside to invite visitors inside to see the flowers.

The show starts Nov. 26 and runs through Jan. 6.In the spring, the train will be installed at Fejervary Park, Davenport. Even though my children are grown, I think it would be a nostalgic way to relive our sweet memories.
