Northgate Mall's popular kiddie train returns on Friday for rides.
This summer, the train will be chugging through the mall with a Western theme. It's had a safari theme in the past. Rides are noon to 7 p.m., Thursdays through Saturdays, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Sundays. Tickets are $3 per child.
Northgate operates the train, but the mall recently announced new operators for its popular carousel and other kiddie rides. Bull City Inflatables also offers storytimes and birthday parties at the mall.
