JAMESTOWN, Calif. – California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation are proud to present an all-new event titled “Tricks, Treats & Train Rides” at Railtown 1897 SHP on Saturday, October 20, 2018, from 5 to 8 p.m. With the Park delightfully decorated for Halloween, the special event offers a variety of safe, fun and family-friendly activities that include trick-or-treating plus other Halloween-themed activities – including train rides, of course – that the whole family will enjoy.
Park visitors are encouraged to dress in their favorite Halloween costumes (sturdy shoes are encouraged) for the special evening event that includes various candy stations set-up for trick-or-treaters, a spirited magic show, and themed crafts and games, to name a few. Plus, memorable and fun excursion train rides behind a historic diesel locomotive will depart at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.
The inaugural “Tricks, Treats & Train Ride” event is sponsored by dedicated and involved community organizations that include the Twain Harte Rotary, Sonora Rotary and Sonora Sunrise Rotary. All activities and train rides are included with admission but are based on availability. “Tricks, Treats & Train Ride” tickets cost $15 for adults, $10 for youth ages 2-17 ($7 for adult members; $5 for youth members), and all children under 2 years of age are free. Because capacity is limited for this special event, purchasing tickets online in advance is recommended.
