Celebrate Circus Week at Morris Arboretum’s Garden Railway


Morris Arboretum celebrates Circus Week at the Garden Railway Saturday, July 1 through Sunday, July 9.  Come and see the circus trains chugging around the quarter mile track with their cargo of elephants, tigers & pandas.  Listen for the call of the ringmaster as you watch the colorful trains transport the “Big Top” that includes a chicken railroad car playing the chicken dance tune!

Children of all ages will delight in the circus trains and this year’s 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
