This Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18th, treat your dad to a day of unique and fun family time!
- Enjoy a pancake breakfast from 9:30am until 2:00pm where Dads eat free with family purchase ($15pp).
- Then say, “Cheese” to our photographer, Richard Roberts of Marsal Studios, who will be on-site to take that much-desired family photo you have been trying to coordinate. Just pose in front of one of our antique locomotives, wait 30 seconds, and voila! You’ll have a FREE, 5×7 image of your loved ones in hand instantaneously.
- Say, “Hello” to Chew Chew, one of the Hartford Yard Goats’ mascots who will be visiting Essex Station on from 10:30am to 12:30pm.
- Finally, Father’s Day corresponds with our Passenger from the Past Weekend with Babe Ruth, so Dads get to enjoy family time and tales from the Babe’s glory days of baseball!
Your family will enjoy a day of outdoor fun on our vintage steam train and riverboat takes you through the Connecticut River Valley. Train departures are at 11:00am, 12:30pm, 2:00pm, & 3:30pm, with Riverboat Connections available after the first three train departures. Purchase your tickets today!
