Kids of all ages will want to get in on the fun on the Halloween Express train rides October 24 & 31 in St. Marys, Georgia.
As passengers ride the rails through woodlands and marshlands, Halloween entertainment abounds. Then at the midway, the real show comes alive when Halloween characters compete to see who will reign over Halloween 2020. Train passengers have the final vote.
Barbara Ryan, entertainment director for St. Marys Express, said, “On the Halloween Express, we go back in time and reclaim the traditions of yesteryear with lots of family fun and levity.”
Ryan said the Halloween Express characters will be more comical than scary.
“As usual, we expect an early sell-out for these excursions,” Ryan said. “The Halloween Express has always been one of our most popular events with children and adults.”
Train passengers can also enjoy free admission to the St. Marys Railroad Museum at the train station.
