The little engine that could, just can’t anymore - Support the Howarth Park Train
Howarth Park Train
Help Keep the Howarth Park Train in Motion
Santa Rosa Parks Foundation's 1st annual Family Fun Night is on October 10th
at Howarth Park from 5-9pm. All proceeds from the night will go towards the purchase of a new ADA compliant Howarth Park Train.
This event will include live musical performances by Pat Jordan Band, Bear’s Belly and Midnight Sun Massive, along with delicious provisions provided by The Wurst, Island Ice and Third Street Aleworks. Santa Rosa High School’s agricultural department is supplying pumpkins for a children’s pumpkin decorating booth and rides will run until sundown.
The train has been a part of the Santa Rosa community for 44 years, and as stated in a previous article by the Press Democrat, “The little engine that could, just can’t anymore.” Currently, the C.P. Huntington costs the city of Santa Rosa $30,000 a year in maintenance and sadly due to its datedness, the 1863 replica steam engine is broken down 1/3 of the time. We ask the community to come together for this special event so that the future generations of our city can enjoy 50 more years of wonderful memories. Tickets will be sold at the venue or you can purchase them now at http://tinyurl.com/n58fxep
