The Chelatchie Prairie Railroad is offering a delicious way to celebrate Independence Day Weekend from 4 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 1, in conjunction with Moulton Falls Winery, 30901 N.E. Railroad Ave. in Yacolt. After some yummy appetizers served at the winery at 4 p.m., the steam locomotive will pick up passengers at 5 p.m., then continue on its scenic route through Heisson and on to a bridge across the East Fork of the Lewis River. On the return trip, the train will drop passengers back at the winery for dinner and festivities.
Tickets for the Wine Train package are available at Moulton Falls Winery during business hours or online at www.tickettomato.com. The price per person is $45, and includes appetizers, wine tasting, the train ride, dinner, and live music from Echoes of Yasgurs until 9 p.m. This is another super-popular event, so purchasing tickets in advance of the day, while not required, is enthusiastically recommended.
