October 20 & 27 In St. Marys, Ga
Kids of all ages will want to get in on the fun when monsters compete to see who is the most fun monster of all on the Halloween Express that runs October 20 and 27 in St. Marys, GA .
As passengers ride the rails through woodlands and marshlands on the way to the Monster Ball, Halloween entertainment abounds. Then at the midway, the real showdown comes alive when Dracula and his friends vie for a place in the Monster Hall of Fame. Train passengers cast the deciding vote to see who gets to reign over the train on the return trip.
Barbara Ryan, entertainment director for St. Marys Express, said, “On the Halloween Express, we go back in time and reclaim the traditions of yesteryear.”
Ryan said the Halloween Express monsters will be more comical than scary, and the good witch will have everyone cheering as she gets the best of the bad witch in a fun way to celebrate Halloween.
“As usual, we expect an early sell-out for these excursions,” Ryan said. “The Halloween Express has always been one of our most popular events with children and adults.”
Train passengers can also enjoy free admission to the St. Marys Railroad Museum at the train station.
