Cary, NC – National Train Day returns to Cary’s Amtrak Station on Saturday, May 11, 2013. Mark your calendars.
Cary Train Day 2013
As reported in the Editor’s Journal a couple of weeks ago, the celebration kicks off with the arrival of the Amtrak Carolinian at 10:02 AM. There will be food, exhibits, games for kids, the Cary Town Band, remarks from elected officials and perhaps a downtown tram. This year, we may see a train ride at the festivities. The fun continues all morning and into the afternoon.
Also on Train Day, from 12-7 PM, the south end of Academy Street will come alive with the 9th Annual Ritmo Latino festival. In a boost to downtown Cary, Amtrak is offering $5 kids’ tickets from anywhere in North Carolina to Cary on Train Day.
