CONWAY — Conway Scenic Railroad's Valley Trains will travel to Conway for a family festival of fun on June 15 and 16 in honor of Father’s Day.

Once there, all dads will be treated to coffee and one of Leavitt’s Country Bakery’s delicious donuts, and families will have a variety of activities to enjoy.

There will be barrel and motor car rides for the kids, tours of the Railroad’s steam engine No. 7470, plus a diesel engine and a caboose, spiking demonstrations, displays of historic Maintenance-of-Way equipment, water bucket contests with Conway Scenic’s own fire truck, and a display of vintage vehicles.

“We’ve always had Father’s Day specials on our trains,” said Susan Logan, marketing manager for the railroad, “but this year we’re taking things to a whole new level. Our guests will spend about an hour in Conway where there will be activities and displays for all ages. We’re especially excited about a small construction equipment contest that’s being sponsored by Coleman Rental & Supply in Conway. That’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Departures are at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. with all trains departing from the station in North Conway Village, going to Conway. There is no admittance to the activities in Conway without a train ticket.
