Polar Express Celebration returns to Nigra Arts Center!

On Saturday, December 8, the Polar Express Celebration will return to the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts for its fourth consecutive year. This family fun event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the center’s facility, 2736 State Highway 30 in Gloversville. Children are encouraged to wear pajamas!

This North Pole-themed event will include crafts, games, live entertainment, raffles and all kinds of family fun inspired by the classic tale “The Polar Express.” There will also be food for sale and opportunities for pictures with Santa Claus.

In addition, the event will host Sensory Santa from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sensory Santa is ideal for any child who may be overwhelmed by large crowds, bright lights and loud music. Children will meet with Sensory Santa alone in a quiet setting, where they will receive individualized attention. Sensory Santa’s suit will be extra soft for a comforting experience, and there will be no nearby distractions such as elves, colorful decorations or blinking lights.

Admission is $5 per person to benefit the Nigra Arts Center or a new, unwrapped toy to benefit Toys for Tots. Children age 1 and under are admitted free. For more information, please visit www.pncreativeartscenter.org or call (518) 661-9932.
