The Polar Express Celebration

The beloved Fulton County tradition continues as the Polar Express Celebration returns to the arts center. Kids are encouraged to wear pajamas!  Guests of all ages will be magically transported to the North Pole as they enjoy crafts, live entertainment, raffles and all kinds of family fun inspired by the classic tale "The Polar Express."

Yummy food with a holiday flare will be available for sale and you’ll be able to snap photos with Santa. Admission: $5 per person to benefit the Nigra Arts Center or a new, unwrapped toy to benefit Toys for Tots. Children a year and under will be admitted free.  

Sensory Santa Available
The Arts Center will also host Sensory Santa from 10:00AM - 12:00PM. Sensory Santa is ideal for children with special needs such as autism and sensory processing disorders who may be overwhelmed by large crowds, bright lights and loud music. Children will meet with Sensory Santa alone in a quiet, soothing atmosphere, where they will receive individualized attention. Sensory Santa’s suit will be extra soft for a comforting sensory experience and there will be no nearby distractions such as elves, colorful decorations or blinking lights. While they wait to meet with Sensory Santa, children will be provided with coloring books and crayons.
