OCT 12

2nd Annual Pennsylvania Cowboy Weekend

Transport yourself to the Wild West in this event celebrating cowboy (and cowgirl) culture. Ride along our No. 17 locomotive with "the most reckless class of outlaws in the wild country," and prepare for an experience straight out of the most beloved cowboy films--complete with train robberies, shootouts, live performances and more. So, don't be a yellow belly, come over yonder this October 12th and 13th for a rollickin' good time!

This family-friendly event includes:

• an interactive cowboy carnival in the heart of New Freedom
• live train robberies aboard the No. 17
• authentic cowboy camp at Summit Grove
• performances by musicians, magicians, buskers and brawlers
• cowboy shootouts with the "good guys" and the "bad guys"
• a Sunday morning service for those who worship
• cowboy story-telling around the campfire
• cowboy-centric entertainment for children
• onsite cowboy camping for interested attendees
• interactive elements for volunteer guests

Take the tracks back in time for this mid-October western weekend with the cowboys of the classics.
