I've been told thanks to some donations from Kansas City Southern Railroad and JE Dunn Construction Company that this year's National Train Day celebration this Saturday May 19th is going to be bigger and better than all the others.
In case you don't know how we celebrate National Train Day in the Line Creek Valley, we do it with our wonderful volunteer operated Kansas City Northern Railroad aka the Line Creek Train in Frank Vaydik Park. In case you need directions, here is how to get there but remember that Englewood Road is closed west of US 169 so you will need to take Waukomis Drive from I-29 or NW 68th Street.
This is a great event and this is a great opportunity to check out the train for free this weekend and enjoy other activities and half price ice skating. Here are some highlights of last year's event.
I also encourage you to plug into the Kansas City Parks social pages. They've got staff that puts the effort into these events and it takes a lot of work and time. They'd rather have a ton of people show up than no one so like their FB page here, their Twitter page here, their Insta page here, and their YT page here. They also have an email sign up on their webpage if your "anti-social" where you can sign up with your email by geography so you don't miss any events. Get signed up/following so you know what's going on. That way you won't be one of those "I didn't know anything about that" people.
They also created a FB event so add it to your calendar so you don't forget to swing by Saturday and let the kiddos have some fun.
