Owen and Tatum Whitmore are the first sibling kid chosen to be conductors of The Trains at NorthPark, a beloved holiday tradition presented by Bank of Texas and benefitting Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) next to the American Eagle location in NorthPark with an intricate configuration with 1,600 feet of track and more than 750 railcars set amidst notable American landmarks through January 8, 2017.
The Trains at NorthPark has raised more than $13 million for RMHD, which provides a home-away-from-home for seriously ill or injured children and their families. Each year, RMHD hosts 1,200 families that travel from more than 40 miles away and who are asked to contribute only $15 per night. No family is ever turned away for an inability to pay.
Tickets are $3 for children 2 to 12 and seniors over 65. Adults are $7, and under 2 are admitted free. Discount tickets for $1 off are available at local Tom Thumb stores. For more information, visit TheTrainsAtNorthPark.com.
