  Includes stop at the Diamond Don Gator Pit for alligator feeding (weather permitting)

Saturday Narrated Historical Day Tours:  12:30 and 2:30

Special train narration commemorating The Jessie Allen Wise Garden Club’s 74th Jefferson Pilgrimage.  Enjoy the unique wildlife and wetlands of a ride along the Big Cypress Bayou to include stop at the alligator pit.  NOTE:  Historic Jefferson Railway WILL NOT be conducting The Great Locomotive Chase this weekend – that event has moved to May 28-30, 2021 as our re-enactors and owners have conflict on the calendar and won’t be able to attend.  Diamond Don RV Park is open to the public and re-enactors.  Bring out the RV and spend the weekend. Train tickets available online.

Event will include musket and cannon fire at the RV Park.
