Wild West Day

Wild West Day

Round up your family and take a journey by train into the Wild West! Watch out for The Black Hat Gang… they’re on the loose and looking for a train to rob. The local Sheriff and Pinkerton detectives will be on board to keep the law, but you’ll want to keep a close eye on your valuables during this family-friendly Western reenactment event. Dressing in Western-wear is highly encouraged!

Wild West Day is a family event and chocked full of side splittin' humor!
