Unseasonably warm and pleasant weather greeted the many visitors to the inaugural ECHO News Fall Festival on Saturday, October 28th at Lion’s Park in Eagle River. The temperatures in the high 30’s and absent precipitation were not the only surprises in store for guests - contests, games, live music and plenty of tricks and treats were also on the menu.
Fall is here and so are the Alaska Railroad’s many special event trains. It’s the perfect time of year to ride along the Railbelt and see the vibrant colors of the fall season, where passengers can experience the great views outside and the good times inside. Bring the whole family aboard for a scary good time on the Kid’s Halloween Train.
