Fiddlers and Fireworks Train Ride
Celebrate Utah’s Pioneer Day on our annual evening train on Saturday, July 23rd. We’ll start the fun at 7pm at the depot with live music by the Utah Old Time Fiddlers. Your ticket includes a fried chicken dinner, which will be served outside at the depot (7:15-8 pm). Dinner includes two pieces of fried chicken, potato salad, rolls, a Suss cookie and soft drinks/ bottled water. At 8:15 you’ll enjoy The Saltwater Bunch gunfighter show, and then the 2 hour round trip departs at 8:30 pm. We travel to Decker Bay on the shores of Deer Creek Reservoir. After the run around at Decker Bay the train will stop on the shores of Deer Creek Reservoir directly across the lake from the Charleston Fireworks. We will enjoy the fireworks from 10 pm until about 10:15 and then re-board the train and travel back to the depot. Additional food and snacks available for purchase in the concession car. This is a fun event for the whole family!
Your ticket includes dinner at the Depot, Old Time Fiddlers music during dinner, and a ride on the Historic Heber Creeper to watch the Charleston fireworks across the lake (Deer Creek Reservoir). Note: Passengers can get off the train and watch the fireworks on the shore of Deer Creek at our “Sparks” train stop. NOTE that de-boarding the train to watch the fireworks includes steep stairs and step onto our gravel platform. This may be difficult for older folks. Passengers are welcome to remain on the train and watch the fireworks from there. We will have folding chairs in the area where we de-board and watch the fireworks.
Also, you can rent the Luxury 100 Business Car for this ride for $4,000. It can hold 16 people. No children under 12 allowed in the 100. Ask the ticket office for details!
