Celebrate Circus Week at Morris Arboretum’s Garden Railway


Morris Arboretum celebrates Circus Week at the Garden Railway Saturday, August 26 through Monday, September 4.  Experience the magic up close as the circus trains bring the “Big Top” to the garden!  Watch asthe colorful railroad cars filled with elephants, clowns, and bears navigate 15 rail lines complete with loops, tunnels and bridges.

Children of all ages will delight in the circus trains and the 2017 Railway theme, “In Motion,” that features structures that incorporate movement in their construct. Check out a replica of the Arboretum pump house that has a wheel that rotates; discover a windmill with blades that turn; and look for a botanical airplane and the flamingo campers.  Many more buildings with special attributes are included in this year’s exhibit.

And this year marks the 20th season of the much-loved Morris Arboretum Garden Railway. It’s a great time to visit the Railway! For more information, visit:www.morrisarboretum.org
