Grosse Pointe Woods residents and their guests are invited to take a ride on the GPW Polar Express exclusive holiday route (heated GPW Park Bus).

The Polar Express will leave the Community Center and take a tour of lighted houses throughout the Grosse Pointes while listening to the Polar Express Story on their way to the North Pole (Cook Schoolhouse).

Upon arrival at the North Pole, travelers will be treated to hot cocoa and holiday treats complete with festive holiday carols.

Children are encouraged to wear pajamas to recreate the setting of the story.

The 2021 Polar Express event is full, however GPW residents can add themselvest to the waitlist.
