Day out with ThomasAll aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine invites little engineers to join him for a day of friendship and family fun at Day Out with Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017. Children everywhere can spend a day with their friend Thomas when the #1 Engine pulls into Calera, Alabama on May 12-14 & 20-21, 2017. Day Out with Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017 is presented by Mattel.

Day Out with Thomas is a fun-filled event that provides children of all ages the opportunity to climb aboard and take a ride with Thomas as well as participate in Thomas & Friends™ themed activities.  The tour, now in its 22nd year, will make 42 stops across the U.S. and Canada, and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2017.  For two back-to-back weekends, little engineers and their families are invited to take a 25-minute ride on their favorite engine, meet Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway and enjoy a day of Thomas & Friends fun.

In celebration of this year’s theme, Day Out With Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017 will feature an array of friendship-inspired activities. Attendees will be able to participate in events that encourage and celebrate friendship including photo opportunities and a fun activity that invites kids to collect passport stamps throughout the day to receive a trio of Day Out With Thomas friendship bracelets. The 2017 tour theme is in line with this year’s Thomas & Friends global brand campaign, ‘Set Friendship in Motion’ – a campaign that ties together content, social integrations, and event activations across the entire Thomas & Friends franchise to highlight the importance of first friendships and the development of key friendship skills in toddlers.

  3. My little boy is 2 years old with a sensory disorder, and absolutely loves trains! This would be an AMAZING experience and adventure for him!

  4. This is so thoughtful of the company to give this away. We are so grateful to be able to take part in this and hope to win. My sons absolutely love thomas and i love him for what he represents, honesty, thoughtfulness and courage.

  5. My 3 year old is dying for my wife and I to take him so he can ride Thomas with his 6 month old little brother. I would love to brag to my wife (stay-at-home mom) that I got on the Birmingham Mommy website and won tickets for the family!! We would love to win!

  6. After having 9 surgeries this year and not being able to afford special things like this…. Winning would be a great blessing for our family!!!
