The Route 70 Cruisers display vintage vehicles from the '40's. Other features include model trains on display, a trackless train for kids to enjoy, and a hand pump train car to examine. Local historian Mike Conley will speak on trains in western North Carolina and bring some artifacts. Marion Mayor Steve Little will be dressed as a convict and talk about prison labor building railroads. Folklorist and puppeteer Clyde Hollifield will have two storytelling sessions and play dulcimer music. We'll even have North Carolina's first Highway Patrol car on loan from the N.C. Transportation Museum! Even more kids' activities and attractions will be available. Food vendors will sell barbecue, hamburgers and hot dogs.It will be a day of family fun to say good-by to summer.
