Pembroke Pines, FL (December 18, 2018) – Do you believe in the Christmas Spirit? For the third consecutive year, children of the Early Development Center (EDC), Bright Beginnings Preschool, experienced “The Polar Express” story, enjoyed chocolate milk and cookies, and took a miraculous train ride around the parking lot to the North Pole. The event was held at the City of Pembroke Pines EDC Bright Beginnings Preschool, located at 901 NW 129th Avenue in Pembroke Pines (Next to WCY middle school).     

The December 14, 2018 event featured the children and staff wearing their pajamas to school for an exciting ride on the Polar Express.  The children got to hear the story of “The Polar Express” as they waited for their turn to ride the train.  As the train pulled into the station, the children were given a magical ticket and a special bell as they boarded.  The children sang Christmas songs, rang their bells and experienced many more fun activities as they traveled around the parking lot to the North Pole.
