Thomas the Tank Engine will pull into Blowing Rock's Tweetsie Railroad this summer. Day Out With Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017 will be held June 9-18.

Day Out with Thomas is a fun-filled event that provides children of all ages the opportunity to climb aboard and take a ride with Thomas as well as participate in Thomas & Friends themed activities. The tour, now in its 22nd year, will make 42 stops across the U.S. and Canada, and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2017. For 10 days, little engineers and their families are invited to take a 25-minute ride on their favorite engine, meet Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway, and enjoy a day of Thomas & Friends fun.

In celebration of this year’s theme, Day Out With Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017 will feature photo opportunities and a fun activity that invites kids to collect passport stamps throughout the day to receive a trio of Day Out With Thomas friendship bracelets. The 2017 tour theme is in line with this year’s Thomas & Friends global brand campaign, ‘Set Friendship in Motion’ – a campaign that ties together content, social integrations, and event activations across the entire Thomas & Friends franchise to highlight the importance of first friendships and the development of key friendship skills in toddlers.

Thomas the Tank Engine rides depart every 30 minutes, rain or shine. Departure times begin at 9:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. each day of the event. Tickets for Day Out with Thomas are $45 for adults and $30 for children ages 3 through 12. Children 2 and under are admitted free.

Tickets are on sale now. To buy your tickets or for more information, call Tweetsie Railroad toll-free at 877.TWEETSIE (877-893-3874) or visit Tweetsie.com.
