Spring has Sprung – Time for a Train Tour in the Prairies
Yay! It’s spring time! The temperatures have surely warmed up this past week. For those of you that follow us, we welcome you back! For our new visitors, Welcome! 2015 is going to be a year of many new things here, to see and do at Aspen Crossing.
You may recall our post from last October, letting you know that we were going to have our very own Railway. Yes indeed! Aspen Crossing Railway is official! Beginning with our Inaugural tour Friday, May 15th dubbed, The Royalty Tour.
For a number of selected VIP’s and those lucky enough to get in on the 50 tickets that will be available to the public, The Royalty Tour will be the best kick-off train tour, the prairies has ever seen!
This May long weekend is also when our 8 themed train excursions will begin. From Ales on Rails, Circus Trains, Dinner Theatre, Wine & Cheese and our Alberta Special, there’s a train excursion to thrill the most avid traveller. For more information, check out our new revamped website for all the details.
Donna and her team have been zealously planting in the greenhouse for our annual Mother’s Day, 2 for 1 hanging baskets, along with a multitude of plants for your garden, for when you are ready to do your annual garden planting. The profusion of colours to choose from is sure to make you want to get down dirty! I know I can’t wait to get planting and get back outdoors again.
When Donna hasn’t been planting, she has been directing traffic in the gift shop, as her various giftware items have arrived these past few months. Let’s just say, that all of us here have been doing a lot of Ooohhhs and Ahhhs as we’ve helped unpack the fabulous giftware that Donna scouted out on her various buying trips. You better come early! Be prepared to be Wowed, while spending a lot of time looking and finding all the wondrously unique treasures that are here at Aspen Crossing’s gift store.
So, what are you waiting for? If you’re ready to shake off the winter chill, and you’re looking for some fun things to see or do with the family, think of us here at Aspen Crossing. Don’t forget, our dining car is now taking reservations again! See you all soon!
