Trains are the Thing at the Palmetto Historical Park!
Palmetto Historical Park and Manatee County Agricultural Museum’s second social of the summer will be a “Model Train Social.” Held over two days on Saturday, August 7th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and Sunday, August 8th, from noon to 4:00 pm, this family event is sure to please any train lover.
The Florida Garden Railroad Society will be visiting and bringing their model trains. There will be trains to look at and trains to play with; trains inside and trains outside; train crafts, train activities, and train movies! Included will be a Thomas the Tank Engine set-up, a fantasy themed set-up, as well as a Tropicana set-up.
There will be a visit from the Smurfs and their train. There will even be a raffle for a Freight Train USA model train offered by the Railroad Society and a swap session that will be open to the public. The members of the Railroad Society love to talk with model train enthusiasts, both young and old.
Come visit the park and have a great time! Word of Mouth BBQ will be selling lunches on both days and Alex’s Lemonade Stand will be raising funds for childhood cancer research.
This family event is FREE! The park is located at 515 10th Ave. West, Palmetto.
