Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure
One of Indianapolis’ most popular family holiday traditions returns. Be one of the first to experience the Eiteljorg’s holiday train exhibit, Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure. Model trains chug through beautifully recreated landscapes and landmarks of the American West and downtown Indianapolis. See Monument Circle, Lucas Oil Stadium, the Grand Canyon, Golden Gate Bridge, the Las Vegas strip and so much more. Open until Jan. 14, 2019. New this year: Route 66 and a miniature of the Hilbert Circle Theatre building, home to the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Train tables, art-making and other winter activities enhance the Jingle Rails experience. Screenings of the holiday film The Polar Express take place on Dec. 15 and Dec. 21, both at 2 p.m. On Jan. 12 at 10:30 a.m., Native American storyteller Dovie Thomason (Lakota/Plains Apache) will present a family program offering an intertribal sampling of traditional animal stories titled Lessons from the Animal People, in partnership with Storytelling Arts of Indiana.
