FestivICE Presented by York Traditions Bank is spreading to the towns of the scenic Heritage Rail Trail County Park! Join us on this special excursion to visit the ice sculptures in Seven Valleys, Glen Rock, Railroad, and New Freedom.

We’ll be stopping in Seven Valley, Glen Rock, and Railroad, where you’ll have 20 – 25 minutes to disembark the train and view the ice-cold art on display in each town. (Passengers who wish to exit the train must be able to climb up and down 6 steps at each stop without crew assistance.)

Arrive early to meet and greet the Ice Princess in our boarding area between 12 PM and 1 PM!

While checking out the New Freedom ice sculptures, visit the Stewartstown Smoke House and Gillice Italian Ice food trucks! They will be parked in the High Street lot next to Marge Goodfellow Park from 11 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and 11 AM to 4 PM on Sunday. (Food and beverages, excluding water, are not permitted on the train.)

Presented in partnership with the York County Economic Alliance (YCEA) Trail Towns program
