Dec. 13. By Dave Coppa. “The Polar Express” is a 2004 hit film turned Christmas classic. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, it tells the story of a young boy who takes a journey to the North Pole during the Holiday season and learns that the Christmas spirit, and really the wonder of life in general, never fades if you believe.

The Bailey’s Glen Polar Express takes visitors back to those memories of Christmas and makes memories for children as model trains make their way through the streets and villages created in the clubhouse Craft Room by their own Polar Express Team.
