Day Out With Thomas Ticket Giveaway! (Iowa Residents)

Can I get a Peep! Peep?  I'm excited to let you know that I have been selected to be a  “Mommy Reporter” Day Out with Thomas:  Leader of the Track Tour 2011 event at the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad on September 17th.

Want to join me? One reader will get a chance to win a family 4-pack of tickets to attend the event in Boone, IA. (Iowa Residents only).  You can also take a look at the Day Out with Thomas Schedule and choose an event that you and your family might be interested in attending.  I will be covering the event by tweeting from there and blogging about it after, posting photos and more! Thomas the Tank Engine will also share our breaking news reports through his Twitter feed http://twitter.com/trueblueengine.

Learn more about the event! Pulling out of the station for its 16th consecutive ride on the rails, the Day Out With Thomas: Leader of the Track Tour 2011 will visit more than 45 cities in the United States and Canada. Day Out With Thomas is the only place for families to take a ride with a 15-ton replica of everybody’s favorite No. 1 engine, Thomas the Tank Engine, and enjoy Thomas-themed activities at the Imagination Station, including stamps, temporary tattoos and hands-on arts and crafts.  Each year the tour grows, traveling to new destinations, adding new activities and welcoming new visitors.   

Hope to see you there!
