Our kids’ favorite, Thomas and Friends, are coming to the Newport Dinner Train (19 America’s Cup Ave., Newport, RI 02840) September 1-4, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, and I received a discount code to save $2 off tickets for Friday through Sunday train rides (normally $19.26 for ages two and up) that I thought others might like to take advantage of!  Just use the Access Code MOM when purchasing tickets (www.ticketweb.com/snl/VenueListings.action?venueId=242395">http://www.ticketweb.com/snl/VenueListings.action?venueId=242395).  Tickets for Thursday are already discounted, and the discount does not work for group tickets of 20 or more.

Tickets include a 25-minute ride on Thomas as well as access to all of the entertainment and events, including a balloon artist, musician, magician and an imagination station featuring rubber stamping, temporary tattoos, coloring and activity sheets, arts and crafts, and more.

Hope some local families can take advantage of the chance to see Thomas and Friends while they are in town (and save some money on tickets!)
