The annual Railroad Days event kicks off today, June 7th and runs through June 11th.
This year Moberly is celebrating its 150th birthday!
The event is free and is open to the public. It’s such a hit in our area, because it’s a small town fair; sort of a heritage festival for our community… People can bring their kids, there’s carnival rides (there’s a cost for this), great food vendors, and other special events to watch and participate in!
Armbands for Railroad Days Carnival will be available at a discounted rate of $20 at Art’s Appliance and Moberly Area Chamber of Commerce Monday Tuesday and Wednesday during normal business hours. They can be redeemed at the carnival for all you can ride during any of the night sessions or Saturday afternoon. Armbands are $25 Starting Wednesday evening and will be available at the ticket booth.
Tonight the Moberly Community Theatre presents “The Follies.” It’s a ticketed event held at the Municipal Auditorium. Song, dance, comedy, and story. “That’s Entertainment.” Let the memories live again! Tickets are available at the Moberly Area Chamber of Commerce office or at the door.
Don’t miss this year’s Sycamore Queen beauty pageant where guys with great big hearts dress real fancy to raise money for their favorite charities. Thousands of dollars have been raised for American Cancer Society, Safe Passage, and many more over the 10 plus years of this fun event. Saturday June 11th at 5pm on the Railroad Days Stage.
