Jun 19, 2021

Ride Time(s): 11:30 AM; 1:00 PM; 2:30 PM

Caution: Riders will experience the sights and sounds of gunfire during the ride.

Witness the exploits of the infamous Jesse James and Younger Gang, a well-known group of 19th-century outlaws! During your trip to Seitzland and back, experience train travel as it was in the Wild West when this notorious group held up trains and passengers. The modern-day reenactors are using their skills for good, robbing the train for donations to Animal Rescue Inc. Come out for a good time and a great cause!

 

Visit Good Eats in the gazebo at the New Freedom Green Community Park before or after your train and grab lunch! Pre-orders are available – visit https://good-eats-catering.square.site/train-event-menu and select your pick-up time.

 

Join us to help raise money for Animal Rescue Inc (ARI). Animal Rescue is a local “shelter for life” for stray and abandoned animals. ARI serves south-central Pennsylvania and Maryland. At any one time, they have approximately 100 dogs and several hundred cats, most of which are available for adoption.

ARI’s annual community event, Dogs’ Day in the Park, is their largest fundraiser and most exciting community event of the year! Humans and dogs alike are invited to join Animal Rescue Inc for a day of fun to raise money for our Sanctuary for Life. 2021 will mark our 17th year of the event. The Mutt Strutt, a walk for pets, will be from 9 AM – 10 AM, and the main event will take place from 10 AM – 4 PM. The day includes vendors and rescues, games and contests, a flea market, Raffle, Silent Auction, cruelty-free foods, demonstrations, Rent-A-Dog, and much, much more.
