Cass Scenic Railroad State Park will be hosting Harvest Day on Saturday, September 27. “This is a great family event full of old fashioned fun, live entertainment, and fall colors, capped with a special evening dinner train to Whittaker Station, “according to Dave Caplinger, Park Superintendent. This event is in addition to Cass’s regular excursions and interpretive programs during the day.
The day includes Mountain dance master Lou Maiuri demonstrating and teaching square dancing and traditional Appalachian dance. Antique farm engines and tractors will be on display, many of them operating.
Joe Holbrook and his “Live Steamers” will be offering free train rides on his miniature live steam train. Miniature trains are a duplication of existing engines, operational, and can accommodate passengers.
