The Park District of Oak Park invited children to board a trolley and be taken to see Santa Claus on Dec. 11.
The Barie Center was transformed into a trolley depot where waiting children could create some magical reindeer food and a special drawing for Santa.
Then they could board the Santa Trolley Express and travel to Santa’s secret location (at Cheney Mansion).
After meeting Santa, Mrs. Claus read stories and kids enjoyed cookies and milk followed by songs and dances.
