Day Out with Thomas Special Sensory-free Event
The North Shore Scenic Railroad is hosting a sensory-free Day Out with Thomas the Tank Engine. Special arrangements have been made through Autism Speaks Minnesota and Mattel, the brand manager for Thomas and Percy, to put on a special two-hour event for families with youngsters on the spectrum.
This is all things Thomas but without the distractions of large crowds, noise, whistles, loud music, bells and confusion. Events are organized in a manageable series of activities that match each person’s own pace and comfort. Families were encouraged to participate with free tickets for a member with autism and an adult. The tickets are provided by US Bank and bank employees from Duluth are volunteering their time to help manage the experience.
Duluth Mayor Emily Larson will be at the museum to welcome people from all over the Midwest.
