Amtrak Train Days
●    On Saturday, July 25, the Amtrak Exhibit Train is pulling into the Grand Rapids Amtrak Station from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
●    Free self-guided tour through Amtrak’s past, present and future.
●    For the youngest rail fans, stop off at Chuggington Kids Depot, featuring toy train and coloring tables.

Farmer’s Alley Theatre
●    It’s Christmas in July as a brand-new sequel to one of our most beloved shows ever hits the Farmers Alley stage with THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK CHRISTMAS MUSICAL.
●    Betty, Lin and Pickles are back with a new cast of residents at North Florida’s most exclusive manufactured housing community – Armadillo Acres.
●    When the trailer park Scrooge gets a freak bout of amnesia at Christmas, it’s only a matter of time before the festivities include what we’ve come to expect from these ladies: cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’ and chair-throwin’.
●    What’s unexpected is the dose of heart and humanity that this show brings to its audiences.
●    So grab a cold one and celebrate the holiday season this summer as we make a triumphant return to the trailer park!
●    July 17 - August 9

BlackRock Medieval Fest
