Harvest Day Events and Special Train at Cass Scenic Railroad State Park September 29

Cass, WV - Cass Scenic Railroad State Park in Pocahontas County sets the backdrop for Harvest Day on Saturday, September 29. The event is family-oriented and full of old fashioned fun, live entertainment, and fall colors, capped with a special evening dinner train to Whittaker Station. All of this is in addition to regular excursions at Cass Railroad and interpretive programs during the day.

Mountain dance master Lou Maiuri will be demonstrating and teaching. Antique farm engines and tractors will be on display, many of them operating. Visitors can try their hand at Irish Road Bowling, blowing the whistle on a genuine Cass locomotive, and quilting. Apple butter making, story telling, blacksmithing, local crafts and wares and other surprises are planned to make it a memorable day for all ages. There is no charge to attend these activities.

The Harvest Special train will depart at 5 p.m. and will feature a buffet meal, live bluegrass music and special treats. Train schedules, train ride or dinner train fees, event times, and general park information can be accessed at www.cassrailroad.com .
