JAMESTOWN, Calif. – California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation are proud to present the 2nd annual “Tricks, Treats & Train Rides” at Railtown 1897 SHP on Saturday, October 19, 2019, 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 for the special evening (sturdy shoes are encouraged). Plus, memorable and fun excursion train rides behind a historic steam locomotive – decorated for the occasion – will depart at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.

 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.
