Wild West Express on No.17 11:00 AM (Sold Out), 1:00 PM (Sold Out), & 2:30 PM

Aug 15, 2020

Ride Time(s): 2:30 PM

August 15, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 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!

Help us raise money for Animal Rescue Inc (ARI), a local “shelter for life” for stray and abandoned animals. ARI serves south-central Pennsylvania and Maryland. At any one time, they have approximately one hundred dogs and several hundred cats, most of which are available for adoption. ARL’s annual community event, Dogs’ Day in the Park, is their largest fundraiser and most exciting community event of the year! Due to crowd restrictions for COVID this year, ARI has been forced to hold a Virtual Dogs’ Day. They are still committed to raising money for the shelter and are planning a virtual 5K and many other games activities with the shelter dogs leading up to the event, and on August 22nd, event day! ARI will be sharing more information on its website and Facebook over the next few weeks, along with opportunities to participate and help fundraise. See more about ARI at https://animalrescueinc.org/
