The Polar Express is going off the rails and coming straight to Hannibal (and it's all free!)

As part of the Victorian Festival of Christmas, guests can board a holiday-themed trolley courtesy of the Hannibal Trolley Company. On board, passengers are treated to the story of the Polar Express by guest narrators.

The Polar Express operates from 5:00 until 8:00 pm on Saturday, December 9. Meet at the 217 N. Main Street in downtown Hannibal and join your event hosts afterward in the Bird and Main parking lot for hot cider and s’mores around a bonfire.

And the best part? The evening is entirely free (for those who believe, anyway). Although, donations are always appreciated.
