It was a cold winter night in Riverfront Park on Wednesday as a group of kids boarded a train.

But this wasn't just any train, it is the first annual North Pole Express on its way to see Santa Claus. The idea came from the Spokane Parks Department and for the very first trip they invited some very special kids and their parents.   

Over the next two weekends, the train will take kids on a ride throughout the park as they sing Christmas carols. The north pole express will run the next two weekends in Riverfront Park. Saturdays at noon, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm and Sundays at noon, 2pm and 4pm.

For tickets you can call 625-6600 or visit the guest services desk at the ice palace.

But students in the Central Valley School District are using their creative minds to build robots. “These students are going to continue to build robots using vex components with the goal that they will control and ultimately program those robots to run autonomously,” said STEM Academy Principal at Spokane Valley Tech, Camille Nielsen.
