Name: Crossroads Village & Huckleberry Railroad - Honoring American Veterans
Date: May 25, 2019 - May 27, 2019
Travel back to a time when things were a whole lot simpler. Crossroads Village is a Great Lakes town from the turn of the century with 34 historic structures and a thriving community. Enjoy a 40-minute journey on an authentic Baldwin Steam locomotive, the Huckleberry Railroad, take a scenic ride on the Genesee Belle, a replica of the paddlewheel riverboats that were popular during Mark Twain's time, catch a show at the Colwell Opera House or learn a trade from one of the village's craftspeople. This weekend, Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel, along with one guest, will receive free admission to the village. Guests can make a card to go to a local Vet at VA Hospital and/or honor a vet by completing a square for a vet they want to honor to go into the 2020 Remembrance Quilt. It is recommended that Huckleberry Railroad train tickets by purchased in advance as the train often sells out.
