Train rides Saturday in Sunbury

SUNBURY — The Sunbury River Festival is rolling into town this weekend — and so are the train rides. Slade Shreck is a chair of this year’s festival. He says there will be three child-friendly train rides Saturday.

“There will be multiple characters including Winnie The Pooh and a big dog,” Shreck said. “Also, as part of the 25th anniversary celebration, there will be buy-one-get-one-free ticket sale as well. You can buy yourself a train ticket and get one for free, which is good if your family wants to go for a train ride. You’ll go out toward Shamokin on the railway. If you’ve never done that, it’s something really cool and something nice to see.”

The BOGO sale is part of the 25th anniversary celebration. Train rides will also be free for those 2-years-old and under — and for those in uniform.

Mark Lawrence is a chair of this year’s festival as well. He says, “There is the Uniform Ride, where folks who serve our community in uniform can ride for free. Whether it’s a veteran, boy scout, girl scout, police officer, firemen… Anybody who has a uniform. You don’t necessarily have to wear it; you just need to have some indication to show us that you qualify.”

Tickets can be purchased at all banks in Sunbury. Rides will depart from The Daily Item Press Building on Raspberry Avenue at 9:00a.m., 11:00a.m., and 1:00p.m. Saturday.

The Sunbury River Festival kicks off Thursday evening with The Valleys Got Talent, and continues with vendors and entertainment Friday and Saturday. You can find more information about the festival at (Codi Jade)
